CORELLI REVIV'D. Scottish, Air (6/8 time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was printed in John and Andrew Gow's A Collection of Slow Airs, Strathspeys and Reels (London, c. 1795, reissued in 1804). Andrew (1760-1803) and younger brother John (1764-1826) established a publishing business in London in 1788 and were the English distributors for the Gow family musical publications. The title is a reference to the Italian Baroque composer and violinist wikipedia:Arcangelo_Corelli (1653-1713). Immensely popular and successful in his day as a concert violinist, Corelli also popularized and perfected the Concerto Grosso form in his composing. He was also renowned as a teacher, and among his pupils were Vivaldi and Geminiani. The Gows' tune incorporates some aspects of baroque style.

The first strain of the tune is shared with Robert Mackintosh's "Ductchess of Manchester's Favorite (The)" but the second strains differ.
