HONORABLE MISS/MRS. DRUMMOND OF PERTH('S REEL) [1]. Scottish, Reel. A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. This tune, attributed to Niel Gow in his First Collection (second edition, 1801), has been identified by John Glen (1895) as taken from a William Marshall composition called "Miss Grace Gordon's Strathspey." Alburger, however, says there is no such title in any of Marshall's collections, although Emmerson (1971) lists it as appearing in Marshall's First Collection of 1781.
