Composer: Robert MacIntosh, 1793
This tune is way ahead of its time!
Reminds me of another Scottish tune called Loch Earn: https://thesession.org/tunes/4961
The original title of this tune is “The Hon. Miss Sempill” and is from Robert “Red Rob” Mackintosh’s 1793 collection.
the second to last measure of the B part thusly:
to avoid repeating the c from the previous measure and to somewhat echo the BGBG in the fourth measure of the same part.
A fun tune! Thanks for sharing it!
