The tune “Mairi’s Wedding” is a standard reel in the repertory of Scottish country dancers, and so infectious that, after dancing it, John Beckwith was unable to get the melody out of his head. This Sonatina is neither singable nor danceable, but is a personal reflection of the spirit of the tune which may evoke singing or dancing memories.
