HIGHLAND BRIGADE AT WATERLOO, THE. Scottish, Jig. A Dorian (Gow): A Mixoldyian (McLachlan). Standard tuning (fiddle). ABC (Martin): AABBC (McLachlan): AABBCCDDEEFFGGHH (Gow). Composed by John Gow (1764-1826), youngest son of the famous Scots fiddler-composer Niel Gow. John moved to London, and with his brother Andrew established a publishing firm, becoming the English distributor of the Gow family publications. The battle of Waterloo was fought on June 18th, 1815, some two years prior to the printing of Gow's 4th Repository, and, in the context of the times, the heroic event was still quite topical (see also the Gow's "Lamentation for the Fallen Heroes of Waterloo"). Gow included two other tunes in the same collection that refer to the battle, "Lamentation for the Fallen Heroes of Waterloo" and "Royal Highlanders Welcome from Waterloo (The)."
