Publisher: Edinburgh: Oliver & Boyd
There are 17 'dancing measures' at the end of Vol.1, and eight at the end of Vol.2. The basslines are almost all repeated notes or piano chords; this is in contrast to the piano arrangements in the rest of the volumes, showing a different approach to the different repertoire.
Biographical info: Campbell lived 1764-1824. Born in Tombea, near Callander, and strongly aware of his Highland identity, he spent most of his life in Edinburgh. He was a one-time medical student, an organist, composer, song-collector, writer about Scottish literature, poet, and farmer. Had reason to be grateful for having been Sir Walter Scott's music tutor, for the latter put work his way when Campbell fell upon hard times. (McAulay, Alburger)
