BANKS OF HELICON, THE. Scottish. "From a manuscript of 1566, printed by Stenhouse, the tune to a song composed in very florid style to celebrate the beauties of the unfortunate Mary, Queen of Scots, whose troubles were in that year soon to begin, with the murder of her favourite, David Riccio, in March. Helicon, in Greek mythology, is a mountain sacred to the Nine Muses, where flows the Fountain of Hippocrene, often referred to as the source of poetic inspiration" (Williamson).
