Minuet no.2 - Minuet 12th - Minuet 13th - Minuet 14th - Minuet 15th - Minuet 17th - Atholl House

"A Sett of Minuets and Marches Inscribed to The Rt. Honble. Lady Catharine Murray by I.R. Esqr.", London, 1781. The current edition comprises three volumes each with six minuets, with the marches available separately.

John Reid pursued parallel military and musical careers. At the time of publication of these minuets he was a colonel, in the 95th regiment. He ultimately rose to the rank of General, and left a substantial bequest to endow a professorship in the University of Edinburgh.

Reid's instrumentation for two melody instruments, two horns and bass was a standard line-up in both military and civilian band music of the period (military musicians were often called upon to reinforce or replace their civilian counterparts). The current edition includes parts for string band; for oboes/flutes and also for clarinets in B flat; and for bassoon. an independent keyboard version is also provided.
