DUKE OF CUMBERLAND'S MARCH, THE. English, March (4/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The march appears in the c. 1770 music manuscript collection of Benjamin Cooke, along with a number of other martial airs. A version was recorded in 1998 by English musician Brian Peters on his CD "Beast in the Box" as "Studentenmarch," which he had collected from folk musicians in Denmark, with the suggestion that it had been a 17th century Dutch melody.
