Masonic song
The importance of Freemasonry to Robert Burns is hard to exaggerate. The 'Craft' brought him the comfort of ritual, fellowship, a network of influential patrons and a set of democratic beliefs he esteemed. Today's verses in praise of 'brotherly love' and the 'mystical bound' were probably sung by Burns himself on this day in 1786. The poet was being honoured by his fellow Masons from the neighbouring lodge of Kilmarnock.
