By the 1840s, British whaling reached a low ebb but during the 1850s, the industry began to flourish, for the introduction of steam power meant that whalers could push to new grounds far to the north, and then batter their way back through some fifty miles of pack ice until the open sea was reached again. The first whaling steamer set out from Hull in 1857, but the most famous whalers under steam power were those that sailed out of Dundee.

The stereotype of the oldtime whaleman is of a hairychested ring-tailed roarer, hard worker, hard drinker, hard fighter. No doubt the description fitted many of them; nevertheless they often showed strong liking for gentle meditative songs. Perhaps alone among all the songs on this record, Farewell to Tarwathie was made not by a whaleman but by a miller, George Scroggie of Federate, near Aberdeen, around the middle of the nineteenth century.

"Farewell tae Tarwathie" possibly written by George Scrogie, a miller at Fedderate, New Deer, in the early 1850s. This haunting beautiful song was recorded by Judy Collins in a long-playing record called 'Whales and Nightingales'. Behind the voice of the singer can be heard the wailing of the whales, a sad sound, as if they were crying out against their fate. Tarwathie is a farm in the lap of Mormond Hill, near the village of Strichen, and the song tells the story of a lad who left there to seek his fortune at the whaling there are three Tarwathies near Mormond Hill, but no one has ever been able to find out what happened to their whaler boy.

Although this work was originally written for pipes, I created this arrangement for String Trio (Violin, Viola, Cello [drone]) & Celtic or Concert (Pedal) Harp.
