LAMENT FOR MRS. TULLOCH, KIRKMICHAEL, A. Scottish, Air (whole time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). "Lament for Mrs. Tulloch" was composed by James Taylor, a fiddler, composer and teacher of music in Elgin who included the melody in his first, c. 1835, collection. There was a minister in Kirkmichael, Banffshire, named Alexander Tulloch (1780-1855), but his spouse, Katherine Stuart, died in 1840 (and so hardly qualifies for a lament composed five years or more earlier).
