Tune of the Day: Lochrynach

Traditional Scottish reel

This reel can be found in William Marshall's Scottish Melodies, which was first published at the end of the 18th century. A note in the book reads: “This good Old Reel is inserted at the particular request of the Duke of Gordon”. “Lochrynach” was not one of Marshall's compositions, but was rather a favorite tune of Alexander, 4th Duke of Gordon, who was Marshall’s employer at the time.
