HIGHLAND TROOP, THE (An Trupa Ghaidhealach). Scottish, Jig or Pastoral Air. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. "The Highland Troop is the editor's composition, intended as a salute to the Black Watch and others, on their return as CONQUERORS from Egypt. Its recent date cannot detract from its character as a Highland melody, he having comparatively little knowledge of any other species of music" (Fraser).
