McLEAN'S LAMENTATION [1]. AKA and see "Humors of Jug (The)," "Miss Smollet's Favorite." Irish, Air (6/8 time). D Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "McLean's Lamentation" is a dorian mode setting of a tune as an air that appears elsewhere as a mixolydian pipe jig. The melody was published in Edinburgh in 1807 under the title "Miss Smollet's Favorite" in Richard Fitzmaurice's New Collection of Irish Tunes. County Cork cleric and uilleann piper wikipedia:James_Goodman_(musicologist) entered a pipe jig called "Humors of Jug (The)," the first two parts of which correspond to both parts of "McLean's Lamentation (1)." P.W. Joyce printed a similarly titled jig, "Tumble the Jug," which has a cognate first strain.
