MISS PURSE'S JIG. Scottish, Jig. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Composed by Scottish dancing master and musician Biography: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 composed "Mr. A. Purse's Reel" for the same collection, and it may be supposed that Mr. A(lexander) Purse and Miss Purse were related (see Annotation:Mr. A. Purse's Reel for more).
