HUMOURS OF REKEN. English, Jig. England, Northumberland. D Major/Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Editor Seattle was not able to locate another version of this tune in any other manuscript available to him, thought he suggests "Wrekin" or "Wrekenton" are "possibilities" for "Reken."

Source for notated version: Northumbrian musician William Vickers' 1770 music manuscript collection [1] [Seattle].

Printed sources: Seattle (Great Northern/William Vickers), 1987, Part 2; No. 232.
