AULD LANG SYNE [2]. "Auld Lang Syne [2]" is the setting of the melody familiar to us in modern times as the air to the famous song (see note for "annotation:Auld Lang Syne (1)"). It was published in a variety of texts from the early 19th century. The melody was also entered into the c. 1837-40 music manuscript collection of Shropshire musician John Moore (Book 2, p. 73).
