Auld Toon O’Ayr

This is my transcription from the Chris Duncan and Catherine Strutt album Carriages at Midnight.

Auld Toon O’Ayr, X:2

Are you sure that’s what they played, Connor? It doesn’t seem quite right (with 20 bars). X:2 is a setting from Middleton’s Selection of 1870, edited by Peter Milne.

Re: Auld Toon O’Ayr

Thanks Nigel. I had a look at the album cover and there is a four bar intro which I included in the setting of the tune that I added to this website.

Re: Auld Toon O’Ayr

Also, When this album was recorded, this tune plus Rob Roy Macgregor are the two tunes that Chris and Catherine played for the dance Mrs Milne of Kineff (2x 32 bar strathspey.) This tune is from the demonstration set 1 (Track 10). The demonstration sets are designed to facilitate a continuous flow of music and dance. Any dance may be selected and the dance can progress for the set number of times according to the instructions.
