Four comments

I took this one from Knauff’s Virginia Reels (1839.)
It reminds me of other tunes, but is a simple yet interesting arrangement that makes it unique. There are a lot of tunes that go by the name Lady in the Lake, mostly because it is a dance. (I don;t know much about the dance.) Knauff had it in 2/4.

I’ve been playing it on fiddle and although I’ve been tempted to rearrange a few notes, the mnore I play it, the more it makes sense the way it is.

Piper’s delight:

Lovely Tune

Since I have not heard any of the recordings that Lady of the Lake has linked to, I wouldn’t count on it being the same tune since so many tunes carry this name.
