LADY MADELINA SINCLAIR'S REEL [2]. AKA and see "Lady Betty Boyle." Scottish, Reel. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "Lady Madelina Sinclair's Reel (2)" is another instance of composer Robert Mackintosh retitling one of his older reels for his Fourth Collection of New Strathspey Reels (c. 1804), somewhat disingenuously as the only thing 'new' about the composition is the title (although there were a number of newly composed tunes in the volume). His "Lady Betty Boyle" was printed in his Airs, Minuets, Gavotts and Reels (1783, p. 32).
