Thread Name: Tune Req: Farewell (William Marshall)
Subject: RE: Tune Req: Farewell march-W.Marshall
Sorry Dan, the tune above is clearly not the strathspey that you're seeking. My apologies.

FAREWELL, THE [1]. Scottish, Slow Strathspey. E Major. Standard. One part. Composed by an elderly William Marshall (1748-1833); it was his musical farewell to his home of Keithmore, which Marshall left at age 74, having resided there 33 years. It was published posthumously in his A Second Collection of Scottish Melodies (the 1845 Collection). Other tunes with the same title were published earlier by James Aird and John Anderson. Marshall, Fiddlecase Edition; 1845 Collection, pg. 35.

Regards, John
