I I am jubilant today. I have searching for it for a long time, but it is just now that I finally have the musical score of the "Annie Laurie". When I bought my bamboo flute years ago the flute vendor gave me the chords but my copy that I taped on the flute case was lost along with the case. But now it is for real. It will be an addition to my early morning flute music.
I first heard about Annie Laurie from the Japanese anime "Little Lord Fauntleroy" or Little Prince Cedie, where the song is played in a flute throughout the TV series. The time it was aired I would die for cartoons. It was really nice story and the song also is very moving.
"Annie Laurie" is an old Scottish ballad based on William Douglas's poem, and the tune was added by Alicia Scott in 1834/5.
