Re: Marchioness Of Huntly’s Favourite

Composed by William Marshall, published by him in his 1822 collection in the key of Cm.

Marchioness Of Huntly’s Favourite, X:2

William Marshall’s C minor version from his 1822 collection ‘Scottish Airs, Melodies, Strathspeys, Reels.’ C minor is not such a common key for fiddle music, but this one sits quite nicely on the instrument. It also creates a rich and dark colour, so it’s worth persevering.
