Forces: Kbd./Hp.

c.1805. The song on which these variations are based was written by the actress Dorothea (Dora) Jordan. The production in which it was first performed remains to be identified.

Originally named The Blue bell of Scotland (a tangential reference to an inn mentioned in the song) it was quickly adopted into the folk tradition and rechristened after the Scottish flower (The Bluebells of Scotland). In his 1809 caricature of the upwardly mobile Farmer Giles and his family (see illustration), Gilray has portrayed the daughter playing the status-symbol piano; the sheet music bears the title "Blue Bell of Scotland sung by Mrs Jordan".
