Tune of the Day: Lord Cathcart's Minuet

Traditional English tune

This minuet appears in the music manuscript copybook of Henry Livingston, Jr., who in 1775 was a Major in the 3rd New York Regiment and participated in Montgomery’s invasion of Canada in a failed attempt to wrest Québec from British control. The title of the piece refers to a popular military figure of the time, Lord Cathcart, the descendant of a Scottish noble family.
