This is a guitar duet setting of the famous and much loved Scottish ballad Annie Laurie. It is based on a set of piano variations by Irish born composer William Vincent Wallace (1812 - 1865). This guitar duet arrangement closely follows the format of the original but with new ideas and changes that were necessary to suit the voice of the guitar. This heart warming piece is featured on Bruce Paine’s DVD on the Auckland historic house Alberton and forms part of a special tribute to the music loving Kerr Taylor family.
Sheet music for this piece is available here.
