“The Marquis of Huntly’s Snuff Mill, or The Royal Gift” copied into a manuscript by Georgiana McCrae, c.1822-1824, held at the McCrae Homestead (Victoria), from Niel Gow & Sons, Part Second of The Complete Repository of original Scots Tunes, Strathspeys, jigs and Dances (Edinburgh: Gow & Shepherd [c.1803]). The tune is attributed to Niel Gow, but it is clearly derived from “Miss Dallas’s Reel”, composed by William Marshall, from the second part of his A Collection of Strathspey Reels (Edinburgh: Neil Stewart ).

Gaia's vision is to unveil the unheard and unseen voices of female composers from the past, whilst supporting female contemporaries through cross-genre collaboration and performance.
