CORRIMONY [1] (Coire Mhonaidh). Scottish, Strathspey. A Major. Standard tuning. AB (Fraser): AABB' (Kerr). This tune "is a tribute of respect from the editor to the worthy author of the Celtic Antiquities, perhaps the individual, in point of taste and knowledge, most sapable of appreciating the merits of the present work,--his unqualified approbation having been the first stimulus to the editor's undertaking it {James Grant of Corrimony, advocate author of the 'Origin of Society', 'Thoughts on the Origin and Descent of the Gael,' &c., is here referred to. Corrimony lived to be the father of the Scottish bar, and died in 1835, aged 92. He is buried in Caldh Churadain, Glen Urquhart}" (Fraser).
