1801_1900_Anonymous 19th century tune book

Info from FARNE :

The tune is taken from a tune book which is part of the Cocks Collection held by Northumberland Record Office at Gosforth, with photocopies at the Black Gate and Morpeth Chantry. The book is a real miscellany of styles, and covers the gamut of 19th century light music. It is anonymous, and evidently the work of several different hands, but nevertheless has some traditional items of interest, including some rare and unique tunes. Only a selection is given here, with the ‘ballroom’ material omitted.

Dating from 1812 it is the earliest manuscript collection of Highland music: now typeset with the addition of texts, translations and detailed commentaries it is freely available for downloading as a pdf file (5.1 MB). The author Elizabeth Jane Ross left the manuscript behind in the library of Raasay House when she departed in 1813 to travel with her sister to India where she later married Baronet Charles D’Oyly.

Elizabeth Ross was a competent transcriber and her settings represent well the wide range of Hebridean music known to the islanders and in Raasay House, home of James MacLeod, laird of Raasay – Elizabeth’s uncle and guardian.

1815_H_Hannay_MacAuslan

Info from alpibroch.com :

c. 1815 – Anon. ‘Hannay-MacAuslan’ MS
NLS ms 11600. Piobereachd.
This anonymous manuscript was discovered in 1940 by Dr Alan MacAuslan, who presented it to the National Library of Scotland after its importance was recognised by Dr David Hannay. It contains the earliest notations by a piper of complete pibrochs with all the grace notes written out in full. The paper is watermarked 1811.
In 1820, nine of the ten tunes were printed by Donald MacDonald, who made a few minor amendments. In 2015, David Hester published typeset editions on this webpage with the aim of offering more legible scores, not of updating the material. The facsimiles of the manuscript were produced by the Piobaireachd Society in 2006. The scale fingering chart on folio 1r and tune no. 1 were accidentally omitted and will be added here in due course.

1820 1850_William Clarke manuscript

Info from www.maryhumphreys.co.uk/ :
Manuscript from an East Anglian country musician of the 1820s-1850s.
This manuscript came into the possession of Lyn and Peter Law of Chester several years ago. It was compiled by William Clarke of whom I can find no census records, although there was a William Clarke named as union clerk and superintendent registrar of the workhouse at Thetford ( White’s Directory 1844, page 707.) They have been very generous in allowing me full access to the book and much of the transcription work was done by Lyn. My grateful thanks to Lyn and Peter. Please remember that they own the copyright of the manuscript and retain all rights to its reproduction and use.

We do not know what instrument William Clarke played, but we suspect he played the flute as there are no tunes that go below middle C in his manuscript. He must have played for social dances, based on the number of tunes he had transcribed and the type of tunes. There are many waltzes, quadrilles, jigs and reels as well as song tunes and marches.

1820 1834_John Clare Manuscripts

Info from the Village Music Project :
Helpstone, Northamptonshire. – Early 19th C., Died 1864.
Two tune books, and assorted loose leaves.
Most tunes written down between 1820 and 1834, but see notes to Redowa polka.
N’hampton MS.12, Here given as tunes Nos.1 to 83 inc.
N’hampton MS.13, Here given as tunes Nos.84 to 247 inc.
Also some written in pencil on loose leaf and inserted into MS.13, Here given as tunes Nos. 248 to 263 inc.
John Clare was a working class rural labourer and poet of considerable fame, both then and now.
He was very interested in the vernacular culture of his village and left a very important record of this in his various papers, etc.
He was also an enthusiastic fiddle player, who collected tunes from a variety of sources.
These tunes include both dance and song tunes.
Many of the song tunes have corresponding sets of words elsewhere in J.Clares Manuscripts.
Many other tunes have words elsewhere, but not in Clare. Deacon provides some texts but it is not certain that Clare knew these as anything other than fiddle tunes. It is equally possible that he did of course, given his interest in song.
Seventeen of the dance tunes have dance instructions attached, and it is evident that these tunes at least were taken from printed sources.

1822_Eliza Tennyson Music Manuscript Book

Info from folopedia http://folkopedia.efdss.org/wiki/Eliza_Tennyson_Ms  : ABC copy by Ruairidh Greig at Internet Archive
The Tennyson family archive is currently held at Lincoln central library and contains the personal library collections of a number of members of the Tennyson family.
There are two manuscript of interest to tune detectives along with a couple of boxes of various musical scores, including a large number of musical settings of Alfred Tennyson’s poetry.
The Eliza Tennyson MS is dated 1822 and is the usual small oblong size and shape of the other handwritten MS generally seen. Its date would mean that Eliza (Alfred’s mother Elizabeth) would have been living at Somersby in Lincs at the time it was written. The book contains about 24 pieces, mostly written in treble clef although a few have treble and bass clef parts. They are mostly just tunes, although there are a few songs.

The second Ms is a similar small handwritten MS with the following on the title page
Julia and Clara Tennyson 16th Oct 1826. It was probably a practice book connected with the piano as all the pieces are written in treble and bass clef parts. It contains 11 pieces, including three songs, a Beethoven piece, a piece for harp and a few miscellaneous tunes. Many pieces were untitled or the handwriting is illegible.

1826-_Peter Reid_Manuscript

Info from http://www.altpibroch.com/r/
NLS ms 22108. Untitled, but signed and dated “Glasgow 1826″.
This manuscript contains 46 tunes and is bound with a copy of an early edition of Donald MacDonald’s published collection. It does not repeat any tune from that book. Also bound in is a manuscript collection of poems and song texts.

Peter Reid is said to have been a good amateur player and to have judged frequently at the annual pibroch competition in Edinburgh. When he wrote the manuscript, he seems to have been a young man, having a business position in Glasgow. Several of the tunes have a note indicating that they were played by a particular piper to win a competition, and one of them is Donald MacDonald, who won the prize pipe in 1817.
Reid was born in Campbelltown and was a student of MacDonald while with the Argyle Militia, c. 1810-1816. When Reid came to Leith, he may have continued his association with MacDonald, but it is also clear from the manuscript that he was friendly with the MacCrummon family. In particular, Malcolm MacCrummon, who had business in and legal ties to Leith, and his son Donald, who started his own kelp and chemical processing concern in Leith.

1828_1888_A Collection of Quicksteps Strathspeys  Reels and Jigs arranged for the Highland Bagpipe_Donald MacDonald

Info from CeolSean :
This collection was published by Donald MacDonald, an Edinburgh pipe maker. This is one of the earliest collection of light music ever publilshed, and pipers may be interested to know that Donald MacDonald established the practice of printing grace notes with the stems turned up, and themal notes with the stems turned down. (If you think about it, it really makes it easier to read the setting!) MacDonald’s Collection was first published in 1828 and six editions were eventually published. This collection remained on the market until the early 1930’s. The version presented here is from the 6th edition.

 1830 ca_James Nuttall manuscript

Info from The Village Music Project :

JAMES NUTTALL MANUSCRIPT c1830
Watter, Rossendale, East Lancashire.
There are 104 items in this abc transcription, including all the Primo, Secundo and bass parts.
21 pages dance tunes and airs, another 10, which I have not transcribed, of Mozart and Handel, oratorios etc.
The date is uncertain, probably mid 1830s, based on the presence of Quadrilles and Paganini pieces (when did Paganini visit Manchester? date clue) and the absence of Polkas.
It is interesting in it’s very sophisticated (for the vernacular) use of harmony theory for the 2nd and bass parts, evidently due to the known history of the Nuttall family in the thriving musical life of the Rossendale area, in their case at least, based on the Baptist Chapels, which they had been instrumental in founding.

Tyneside Northumbria
This index relates to a manuscript book of country dance tunes written down by John W Moore of Tyneside, starting on June 5th, 1841. From the keys of the tunes it is thought that he was a fiddler. Nothing else is known of the man at this stage. The book is one of two, the first being a rough copy of the second. Both books are in the possesion of Paul Burgess, an English fiddler living in Charlton Kings, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England.
