James Simpson of Dundee - Flute Manuscripts

On this day ...

ANNIVERSARY - Today, 23 August, James Simpson married Cecilia Elder in Dundee in 1834. 

The three precious flute manuscripts that he'd begun compiling in 1828-1830 went with him to their first home. Who knows, maybe he went on adding to them. 

RSAMD has these MSS in Special Collections.  Music and Academic Services Librarian Karen McAulay has indexed and published articles on them.Find out more about the manuscripts here
