William Marshall (311 tunes)
These tunes were originally contributed in 2005 by Clark Bernst. More recently, I've been revising them to add in Marshall's bass parts, plus some ornaments that got missed in the original transcriptions.

Winder manuscripts (651 tunes)
This is a collection of manuscripts kept by the Winder family, of Dolphinhome, Wyresdale, Lancashire, originally written down by various instrument-playing family members. There are 3 separate bundles of dance-type tunes (said to date from 1789, 1823, and 1835-41) and also, I believe, a quantity of "West Gallery"-style vocal arrangements, which I've not seen and which aren't included here. Yet. Along with all this were a couple of little books, which follow the manuscripts below.
