NOVELTY [1], THE (Nuadhalachd). Scottish, Reel. E Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "(From) Captain Fraser's collection" (Skye). Simon Fraser (1816) notes: "This tune and "Beauty of the North (The)" form a medley by the editor, which has been much in request. (It) has been for a long time associated with the "Marchioness of Cornwallis' Strathspey (The)," by Mr. Marshall; it forms an exceedingly good medley also with 'Editor's Thanks to Mr. Nathaniel Gow (The)."
