    Origin of this song...

    I love, love, love this song...I'll bid my heart be still...sung by Ian and Sylvia..

    I've been singing it forever and just read that this is a Scottish song. Does anyone know the origin of the song and it's history?

    Sorry, I can't upload the song as my ipad won't allow this...grrrrrr.. Maybe someone else can help me out....

    I can't find it performed by those artists but here's a beautiful piano/viola version.

    Rebecca Clarke - viola and piano - I´ll bid my heart be still - YouTube

    Re: Origin of this song...

    It's listed in the National Song Book of 1906 and says it is based on a poem by Thomas Pringle and an "Old Border Melody". Here is a link to an old (2002) discussion of it on the Mudcat Cafe. mudcat.org: Origins: I'll Bid My Heart Be Still (T Pringle)

    How about the following link.......................

    mudcat.org: Origins: I'll Bid My Heart Be Still (T Pringle)

    Scroll down, you'll probably find it quite interesting, although you may have already found this before and read it ? Hence thinking it is Scottish in origin, which it seems to be.
