Happy New Year!

Should Auld  Acquaintance  Be Forgot…”  “for Auld Lang Syne” may be  loosely translated as  “for the sake of old times.”  Robert Burns, a Scottish poet, collected the words  and set them to  a Scottish folk tune in 1788.  Since then, the song has spread through the English-speaking world as the song sung for the New Year as the clock strikes midnight.  We can only imagine that Robert Burns never expected his song to be such a perennial favorite!  Stanton’s has the sheet music for this traditional New Year’s song, and lots of other holiday sheet music.  For more information about this or other holiday music, call us at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at keyboard@stantons.com, or visit our website, http://www.stantons.com.
