    Interesting that Alec Hay's dance, the less familiar of the two, was
    actually written first (by a matter of months) and was probably not known to
    Bob Campbell. I wonder who the original "Australian Ladies" in William
    Fergusson's pipe march were. Does anyone have information on Fergusson? His
    work was still in copyright when "Glasgow Assembly" was published, as Bob
    Campbell acknowledges the permission of Fergusson's estate to reprint the
