“Ye Banks and Braes,” also known as “The Banks O’Doon” (a river in Scotland), is a poem written in 1791 by Robert Burns, who then set the lyrics to a Scottish air called “The Caledonian Hunt’s Delight.” Those lyrics tell the sad tale that was Burns’ inspiration for the poem.
The tune has been nicely arranged for 8 bells and is accessible for the Level 2 ringer. It may be played as a 4iH duet, a trio, or a quartet. It is two pages in length and includes a repeat. (The recording does not include the repeat.) Alternate title: Come, O Thou Traveler Unknown
