Subject: RE: Origins of 'Soldier's Joy'?
Your source didn't trace it very far, and the original issue of McGlashan's 'Scots Measures' seems to have been 1778 (copy in Library of Congress, with an adv. pasted in, noting for sale Aird's 'Airs' in one volume). That and another early Scots source are noted in the Scots tune index on my website.
