CORDICK'S HORNPIPE. Irish, Hornpipe (while time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "I copied (this air) from a MS. evidently written by a skilled fiddler with much musical taste, from Limerick, but the name of the writer nowhere appears" (Joyce). The melody appears in Scottish publisher James Kerr's Merry Melodies (c. 1880's) under the title "Byrne's Hornpipe (3)." See also the closely related "Miss Carroll's Hornpipe" from the 1804 collection of piper O'Farrell, and O'Neill's "Pleasures of Hope (1)."
