The Maryhill Songbook

9.00 12.00

We were delighted to collaborate with Maryhill Heritage Choir in Autumn 2017 to create The Maryhill Songbook. Maryhill Heritage Choir, led by award winning singer Maeve Mackinnon composed new melodies to turn 19th-century poetry from our digital archive into songs which tell stories of Maryhill and its community between 1822 and 1905. The Maryhill Songbook shares the beautiful melodies created and gives us insight to the lives and characters of old Maryhill and Glasgow.

 

The book is 18 pages long, with music sheets of 7 original melodies composed by Maeve Mackinnon and Maryhill Heritage Choir with 19th century poetry as the lyrics and includes an historical narrative for each song.  

 

This project was grant aided by Creative Scotland.
