FAVOURITE PANDEAN DANCE, A. English, Jig. England; Shropshire, Dorset, Sussex. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABA. Very similar melodies may be found in the Hardy MSS under the title "Pandean Dance in Tekeli" and in the Welch MSS (1800) as "Pedean Dance in Tekile." Pandean, Ashman explains, means ‘of the Greek god Pan’.

Source for notated version: a c. 1837-1840 MS by Shropshire musician John Moore [Ashman].
