This ballad is beautifully written for the voice. The tessitura lies easily for the soprano voice range, with some stretch and consistently low singing for the altos (typical of this style). Although the melody is a composed one, Ms. Schultz has captured the essence of a Scottish air, hauntingly sweet in nature. A violin obligato is indicated but any C instrument would work well.
