MERRY ANNIE. Scottish, Reel. E Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. The melody appears in the Drummond Castle Manuscript, Part 2 (1734, No. 12) in the possession of the Earl of Ancaster at Drummond Castle, inscribed "A Collection of the best Highland Reels written by David Young, W.M. & Accomptant." It consists of sections of six measures each, along with several variation sets. Matt Seattle [1] finds the tune cognate with William Vickers' "Scotch Lilt (1)" and Robert Bremner's "Yeil Yeil/Yeal Yeal."
