‘Languor of Love’ is a slow air and is the very first tune in the Captain Simon Fraser collection of 1815, ‘The Airs and Melodies Peculiar to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isles’. The Collection has both the English names as well as the Scottish Gaelic names of the tunes. This tune is also called ‘Tha mi tinn leis a ghoal’. The Strathspey tune ‘Ruffian’s Rant’ first appears in Robert Bremner’s Scots Reels or Country Dances (1757). Robert Bremner (c1713-89) was famous for publishing the first collection of specifically Scottish dance music (1757-61).
