Ferintosh CD: Three Good Fellows Down in Yon Glen
This arrangement begins with a quote from the well-known passacaglia for unaccompanied violin by Austrian composer Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644-1704). The setting of Three Good Fellows comes from the Gows' fifth collection (1809) although the tune was printed earlier in William McGibbon and James Oswald's collections in the 1740s. A note in the Gow collection reads, "This Tune was a particular favorite of Niel Gow." Verses to Three Good Fellows Ayont Yon Glen can be found in James Hogg's Jacobite Relics (1819) where they begin "There's three true good fellows, Three brave loyal fellows, There's three true good fellows, Down ayont yon glen.."
