LORD GREGORY. Scottish, Air (3/4 time). A Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The editor of "The Native Music of Ireland, No. 32", published in The Citizen; or Dublin Monthly Magazine (vol. IV, No. XXIV, October, 1841, p. 209) noted that this tune is a member of tunes formed with phrases of four bars and three bars, "which is the division of the ordinary Psalm tune, in "Common Measure"." Others in this category are air "Small is my inclination to sleep", from the Fraser collection (1816), and and "O saw ye my father/Saw You My Father?."
