Our dear ol’ friend Nat, I miss his collections, which I have but not on hand or I’d have done a direct transcription for comparison. Over time we’ve the pleasure and enjoyment of many of his tunes…

Come on Dow, haven’t you got a take on this one?

“Nathaniel Gow’s Quickstep” ~ also played in Bb

~ but I prefer it lower down, as given, in G…

A relation of this Mr Gow stayed as a very early guest in our B&B but unfortunatly couldn’t play music.
I can hear an old English tune in it as well as a set-dance. Blowed if I know the name of it though.
