X:2 T:Shaun Truish Willichan M:C L:1/8 S:William Sydney Mount manuscripts c. 1849 N:Mount’s version is almost note-for-note the version printed in Wilson’s Companion to N:the Ballroom (1817). An early setting of the tune appears in Bremner’s Second N:Collection of Scots Reels and Country Dances (1757). N:The last part is a variant of the 4th part, an octave lower, and probably a substitution for N:it.
