A Fourth Collection of Strathspey Reels
by Malcolm Macdonald



Full title: A Fourth Collection of Strathspey Reels &c, With a Bass for the Violoncello or Harpsichord […] By Malcolm McDonald at Dunkeld.

Publisher: Edinburgh: the Author

Printer: For the Author

Date: [1797?]

Notes:

GB-Gm copy has some staining from water damage.
There are a lot more broken octaves (especially in Scots Measures), and some pianistic oscillating patterns. In 'Lord Breadalbane's Delight', jig in D always ends on B minor, bass ends on F sharp each time. Includes tune 'Short life to all Stepmothers' - a Strathspey. 'Miss Farquharson of Invercalds Jigg' has alternative lines apparently for cello or keyboard. 'Mrs Muir Mackenzie's Reel' uses flat third to move from I to O (flat 7th).
