Lady Elizabeth Lindsay’s

From the playing of Alex Francis MacKay. This is one that you have to hear to get the rests sounding good in the first part and the use of some double stops in the second. To my ears MacKay’s treatment of the B part is reminiscent of the way old-time players will let the bow cause some “accurate inaccuracies” across strings to get a full sound. It is also played in B flat.
