Composed by William Marshall. According to the linear notes of the Fyvie’s Embrace: The Golden Age Of The Scottish Fiddle album, the publisher was responsible for the title Miss Louisa Duff. This first appeared in Marshall’s 1781 collection as Miss Gordon Of Glastinum’s. It later appeared in the posthumously published collection of 1845 in it’s current guise.
The take given here, along with the misspelled title, is quite a bit different from Marshall’s original:
This is as it appears in the 1781 collection (A Collection of Strathspey Reels With a Bass for the Violoncello or Harpsichord Composed by Wm Marshall). As “Miss Louisa Duff” in the 1845 collection (Volume 2nd of a Collection of Scottish Melodies Reels Strathspeys Jigs Slow Airs etc for the Piano Forte, Violin and Violoncello Being the Genuine & Posthumous Works of William Marshall) it is identical in melody apart from the F in each fourth bar being sharp (i.e., AG^FA G/G/G G2 and ag^fa g/g/g g2 instead of AGFA G/G/G G2 and agfa g/g/g g2).
