DOUGLAS MACFARLANE'S VICTORY. Canadian, Reel. B Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. Composed by Pipe Major Alexander S. (Piper Alex) MacDonald (1892-1966), originally from Cape Breton who later moved to Ontario. MacDonald played the fiddle as well as the pipes, according to Paul Stewart Cranford (1995), and some of his compositions were included in MacQuarrie's 1940 Cape Breton Collection. The tune has erroneously been called "The Missing Reel."
