Ca’ the Yowes to the Knowes (Peace Collection)


The gorgeous melody of this beloved traditional Scottish song is the “star” of this arrangement, garbed in the sonorous harmonies of men’s a cappella voices.  With text by Robert Burns, in his second version, published in 1794.

A licensed copy is required for each member performing.



My friend Harriet Fraser and I both responded to the stress of the pandemic by sharing “peace of mind” — she by singing to her children, and I with my Facebook community through nightly piano “vespers.” One night I played the Welsh lullaby All Through the Night, and Hatty reached out to ask if I could set it for voices so that she could record it to share with her family in England. A project was born, resulting in twelve a cappella arrangements which Hatty recorded. After casting about for a suitable name, we simultaneously realized, on the same day — without mentioning it to the other — that perhaps it should be simply named PEACE.
