CONFEDERACY [1], THE. AKA and see "Glen Morisone's Reell," "Ye’re Welcome Charlie Stuart." English, Scottish; Reel. England, Northumberland. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears in Edinburgh fiddler and writing master David Young's Duke of Perth Manuscript(1734), also called the Drummond Castle Manuscript because it is in the possession of the Earl of Ancaster at Drummond Castle. Young also included a nearly identical (but not exact) version in his MacFarlane Manuscript (c. 1741, p. 230). "Confederacy [1]" was published in London in John Walsh's Caledonian Country Dances and Walsh's Third Book of the Compleat Country Dancing Master (London, 1735). It is miss-spelled as "The Confederalecy" in William Vicker's original 1770 Northumbrian dance tune MS. (Seattle), and it also appears in the music manuscript of London musician Thomas Hammersley (c. 1790). A different, unrelated tune called "Confederacy (2)" was printed in London by the John Young in the second book of the Dancing Master, beginning with the first edition, in 1710.
