Adew Dundee

The lure of Scottish melody with its gapped scales and "scotch snaps" (short-long rhythms) motivated the English to set new words to Scottish tunes or to write new tunes in imitation of Scottish style. The popularity of "Scotch" style reached its zenith after the Restoration, culminating in the publications of the Playfords and Thomas D'Urfey, the latter of whom is represented here by the two selections from Wit and Mirth: or, Pills to Purge Melancholy of 1719: The Scotch Cuckold and Catherine Logy. -Mary Anne Ballar
