In the vogue for the "natural" that seems to have been well established by 1760, we find real folk and folk-like melody receiving much attention (still so). During the Enlightenment quarrels over Italian and French opera, we find for example many Scottish and Irish tunes appearing in print for the first time. These were regarded by philosophers as one proof of the genius of the uncorrupted, natural man. What could be more nationalistic than the traditional music of a people that is passed from one generation to the next.
