FAVOURITE PANDEAN DANCE, A. English, Jig (6/8 time). 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’.
