LENNOX'S LOVE. AKA and see "Lanox love," "Lennox's love to Blantyre," "Milkmaids of Blantyre (The)," "Three milkmaids of Blantyre," "Wren." English, Reel. England, Northumberland. G Major/Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A different tune than "Lenox Love to Blantyre." It was published in David Rutherford's Compleat Collection of 200 Country Dances, vol. 2 (London, 1760, p. 75). A variant of the melody was used as the vehicle for the song "The Wren" in Johnson's Scots Musical Museum, vol. 5 (1797, p. 497). Robert Bremner published a nearly identical version in his Scots Reels (1757) under the title "Milkmaids of Blantyre (The)."
