Full title: A Second Collection of Strathspey Reels &c. for the Piano Forte Violin & Violoncello, Composed by William Shepherd Dedicated to Lady Carmichael of Castlecraig
Publisher: Edinburgh : Printed & sold by Gow & Shepherd
Printer: Gow & Shepherd
The basslines in this second book are a little more intricate and only a little more pianistic than those in the first: some chords and broken chords, but still mostly 4-beat single notes.
Many tunes appear to follow rather predictable patterns and are rather lacking in character.
Biographical info: Shepherd (c.1760-1812) was a fiddler, composer, music publisher and seller, who in 1796 entered partnership with Nathaniel Gow until Shepherd died in 1812. (Glen 2, xv; Gore)
