X:1 T:Old Long Signe T:Auld Lang Syne [1] M:4/4 L:1/8 R:Air N:Probably to be played as a dance rather than a listening tune i.e. not slow B:Bowie Manuscript (c. 1695, f.31v) N:The MS was once in the possession of George Bowie, who entered his N:name with the date 1705 in the front. It is unlikely that Bowie was the author N:of the MS., which, at any rate contains a number of known and suspected N:compositions of John McLachlan, an Edinburgh musician in the 1690's.
