Back to Miss Elliot’s Favourite
MISS ELLIOT'S FAVOURITE. Scottish, Slow Air (2/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Composed by Scottish dancing master and musician Duncan MacIntyre (c. 1767-1807), who established a practice in Edinburgh, but who moved to London in the 1790's. It was in the English city that he published his 1794 collection, dedicated to Lady Charlotte Campbell. MacIntyre also included a tune entitled “Miss Susan Elliot’s Reel," perhaps for the same person.
