  • Scope and Contents

    Copies of Irish songs and airs made, 1922-1926, from an unidentified earlier collection (or collections: cf MSS.21836, folio ii, 21837, folio i).

    The volumes are different from the work by Lachlan Macbean published under the same title at Stirling in 1921.

    The copies appear to have been made by Annie M Higgins, possibly for Alexander B Ritchie, a leading medical practitioner in Manchester.

    The copies are in simple treble notation, not accompanied by words, and may have been intended for instrumental use, possibly for violin.

  • Immediate Source of Acquisition

    Transferred, 1974, from the Department of Printed Books.
