Anne Neilson Male/Female unaccompanied songs (17) RE: Male/Female unaccompanied songs 31 Jul 12

There's a Scottish duet where he is going away/ to war? and she asks what he will bring back to her -- 'Huntingtower'.

V1 is When ye gang awa', laddie,
         Far across the sea, laddie,
       When ye gang tae Germany
       What will ye bring tae me, laddie?

There is then an extended question and answer exchange until it finally ends with his verse where he promises her that "All that's mine is thine, lassie.".

The tune is sweet (but can occasionally sound sentimental if the singers aren't sufficiently sincere, or 'in the zone').

Sorry about the lack of links -- a step too far for my current level of technical expertise!
