Tune of the Day: Lady Mary Montagu's Reel
by Ignatius Sancho
This tune was composed by Ignatius Sancho (1729–1780), and was first printed in his Twelve Country Dances for the Year 1779. Sancho was a former slave who became emancipated and found advancement and patronage from the wealthy Montagu family.
Thanks to Anne for suggesting this piece!
