LINER NOTES:

 

'Flower of Scotland' was written by the late Roy Williamson of the famous Scottish duo The Corries in 1969, and first recorded by them in the same year.

 

Subsequently 'Flower of Scotland' has since been recorded by many top Scottish artists, choirs and pipe bands. In recent years, the song has been adopted as the unofficial national anthem of Scotland, and as such is now heard resounding around sports stadia at major events. It was first sung at a rugby international by the players at Murrayfield in 1990 - incidentally the year that Roy died. A Scottish national newspaper subsequently ran a phone-in to establish whether 'Flower of Scotland' was now more popular with the public than the more traditional 'Scotland The Brave'. 'Flower Of Scotland' received over 30,000 more of the votes, so the song is now firmly established as the song of Scotland. This new 1995 version is performed by one of Scotland's best-loved contemporary singers, Barbara Dickson.
