The Simon Fraser Collection brings together the airs and melodies peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles from 1715 to 1745. Many of the over 240 airs in this book are Captain Fraser's instrumental settings of Gaelic songs derived from the singing of his father, grandfather, and their acquaintances. Other tunes are a mixture of traditional and newly composed strathspeys, reels, and jigs from this time period. The music in this book is especially written for those who play the piano, harp, organ and fiddle. People interested in this type of music will be aware of the Simon Fraser Collection due to the history that it is part of. The product has been unavailable for years, which makes it a very popular item.
