Tune of the Day: General Elliot's Delight

Traditional English jig

This melody first appeared in print in a 1765 country dance collection published in London by Charles and Samuel Thompson. The title refers to General George Augustus Elliot (c. 1718–1790), a military officer renowned for his intellect, self-discipline, and his skillful handling of troops.
