dermod in salisbury Old fiddle tunes recycled as songs (26) RE: Old fiddle tunes recycled as songs 05 Sep 05

M.Ted makes the point. More likely many old songs or marching tunes have been speeded up to make a dance. Although, it also must also be said, in the Niel Gow collection of Scottish dance music, bits first published in 1784, many of the dances, most even, are marked to be played slowly. Many of these same tunes we use today, and only ever hear at breakneck speeds.
