A web resource for the AHRC Editing Robert Burns for the 21st century: prose and songs project. We worked with a group of 11 young musicians to recreate period performances of 25 songs from the first two song collections associated with Robert Burns: The Scots Musical Museum, and George Thomson's Select Collection of Original Scottish Airs. This project was managed by Kirsteen McCue and the online resource was delivered by her and the project PDRA Dr Vivien Williams.
