The Lads Of Foss

Also called The Merry Lads of Foss but this is how it is titled in the Athole Collection where this setting comes from. Great D reel for lovers of triplets. The music calls for trills/rolls as well: on the B notes in measures 1 and 3 of the A part and in the B part on the f#s throughout. I couldn’t be bothered to put them in as they are so optional…and the fact that they don’t sound anything like a real roll in ABC lingo.
