Index for the “Second’s”

There are 43 Harmonies listed in the Index for the Second’s although there are 49 harmonies in the book. The two tunes written up and down this Index page are of the same ink and style as music later in the manuscript making it likely that they were drawn in this empty space later on but still before someone listed the last 6 harmonies.

Note the highest numbered melody listed in the Harmony Index is for melody #464. The first three harmonies not listed in the Index are for melodies #657, #610 and #718.

Samuel Quinton was a Drummer in the 34th, then Sergeant-Major, then Adjutant. His presumptive father was a long-serving Coldstream Guards sergeant. (Coldstream went to Battle of St. Lucia and 1801 Battle of Akubir, Egypt.) Samuel Quinton wrote a tune about the regiment’s storming of a Carib camp in the West Indies. Samuel died in India. – Eamonn O’Keeffe.
8 The Mens Diner Drum  6/8 D – Melody #223 The Roast Beef of Old England
The Dinner Call Harmony - Ken Purvis
Transcription Ken Purvis – “Military Music of the War of 1812” p.31
“The song that served as the “The Dinner Call” for officers and men in the British army was a tune entitled “The Roast Beef of Old England”. The first two verses of the lyrics to this song appeared in 1733 in Henry Fielding’s play of that year, “Don Quixote in England”. Another, longer version of the song by Richard Leveridge was published shortly after Fielding’s play. It was this rendering that became most popular, and was subsequently adopted by the British army … What is somewhat puzzling, given the song’s strong English chauvinism, was its choice as the American “Dinner Call” … almost certainly used as “the Dinner Call” during the War of 1812 by both British and American troops.” – Mark McDayter
