DUKE OF YORK'S QUICKSTEP, THE. AKA and see "Miss Frances Russell." English, Quickstep March (2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. A different tune than "The Duke of York's March." Gibbon's original setting is in the key of 'C' major. A version of this tune under the title "Miss Frances Russell" was printed by Montrose and Aberdeen dancing master and musician Archibald Duff in his Choice Selection (c. 1812), perhaps as part of his "Pas Seul (7)" suite, or perhaps as a stand-alone tune (it is unclear).
