One of Robert Petrie’s compositions from his 1st collection published in 1790. Sort of creepy sounding especially with the D# in the last phrase of the B part. If you want to de-phantom of the opera it, I’ve found that it works just as well with a D natural.
If you have £2,500 to spare, you can stay in Persie House for a week:
Persie House, haven of bourgeoisie or outlaw fiddlers?
Nearly 360 a night! Good to have some pics of the place. Whenever I learn a tune I try and learn something about the place/event/person etc. it might be named for, thanks.
I read somewhere that Robert Petrie was described as a ne’er-do-well and died penniless in a ditch…so I thought, man, gotta check this cat’s tunes out. Been playing this one after Mrs. Forbes.
