SIR WILLIAM WALLACE. Scottish, "Pastoral Air" (whole time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Composed by J. Scott Skinner, appearing in both his Scottish Violinist (1900) and Harp and Claymore (1904) collections. It commemorates the Scottish hero William Wallace (b. 1270), who led a strong revolt against the English but was finally defeated at the Battle of Falkirk in 1298 by the forces of Edward I. The air is a companion piece to Skinner's marching air "King Robert the Bruce."
