PAS SEUL [6]. Scottish, Dance Suite (cut time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABC. "Pas Seul [6]" is a suite of four tunes arranged together for a choreographed solo dance, printed in Montrose and Aberdeen dancing master and musician biography:Archibald Duff. Duff arranged many such "Pas seul's" for his adolescent female students, perhaps soft-shoe ballet-like dances, although now lost, rather than the usual figures of country dances, jigs, reels, etc. "Pas Seul [5]" was for Miss Jane Forbes, mentioned in Duff's title.
