THORN, THE. Scottish(?), Air (whole time). E Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. "The Thorn" was included as the middle movement in Archibald Duff's "Pas Seul (3)" dance sequence, presumably arranged for a performance by one of his dance students, Miss Frances Urquhart. See note for "Pas Seul (3)" for more.
