This tune was published with dance instructions by Peter Thompson in Thompson's 200 Country Dances Volume 4 Index


William Chappell writes in Popular Music of the Olden Time that the song The Dusky Night was written by Henry Fielding for his ballad-opera Don Quixote in England (1734) to the tune of A begging we will go. However, many printed sources show these words set to the tune above.
