Robert Riddell of Glenriddell, 1794
This extremely valuable collection of mostly border music is now available on line courtesy of Ross Anderson and Anita Evans.

How she will never be guided

There are some fine fiddle settings of familiar tunes here, as well as a number which are less familiar. Riddell’s notes to the tunes also offer much information about the music and the book gives a unique overview of border music at the end of the 18th century.
Ross Anderson’s site is a treasure trove of 18th & 19th century music sources as well as early piping recordings; it should be on every piper’s bookmark list. []
