GUEST,Jack Campin Irish airs/Queen Elizabeth's music-book (14) RE: Irish airs/Queen Elizabeth's music-book 31 Jan 17


The urban legend that Rizzio composed a significant number of Scottish tunes was dreamed up by James Oswald early in the 18th century. Most of Oswald's contemporaries could see it was twaddle even then, and nobody in Scotland took it seriously after Oswald died. (We have no evidence that Rizzio ever composed anything at all in any idiom). God knows why Munnelly chose to reanimate its corpse.
