Mrs Parker's Selection of Scotch Tunes Strathspeys & Reels
by Mrs Parker



Full title: Mrs. Parker's Selection of Scotch Tunes Strathspeys & Reels for the Piano-Forte or Harpsichord

Publisher: Dublin. Publish'd by Edmund Lee (No..2) Dame Street near the Royal Exchange

Date: [1797-1800?]

Notes:

Basses are all single lines, some very active, others very repetitive (including 'Pipe Reel'). some double stops and fiddle chords in treble stave but basses consistently single. GB-En copy ends on p12 with Colonel McLeod's Strathspey. It is interesting that a DUBLIN book has such characteristic basslines.

RISM: P934

Gore: P1-1

Link: British Library
