MISS GRAHAM’S DELIGHT. AKA and see “Niel Gow's Lament for the Death of His Second Wife.” Scottish, Air or Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears in Malcolm MacDonald’s 2nd Collection, dedicated to the Earl of Breadalbane. Charles Gore points out that the prototype for this tune is the Irish air “Kitty Tyrrell (1).” Both tunes may have contributed to the famous "Niel Gow's Lament for the Death of His Second Wife."
