CORRELLI REVIV'D. Scottish, Air. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was printed in John and Andrew Gow's A Collection of Slow Airs, Strathspeys and Reels (London, c. 1795). Andrew (1760-1803) and younger brother John (1764-1826) established a publishing business in London in 1788 and were the English distributors for the Gow family musical publications. The title is a reference to the Italian Baroque composer and violinist Acrangelo Corelli (1653-1713). Immensely popular and successful in his day as a concert violinist, Corelli also popularized and perfected the Concerto Grosso form in his composing. He was also renowned as a teacher, and among his pupils were Vivaldi and Geminiani. The Gows' tune incorporates some aspects of baroque style.
