DAPHNE'S DELIGHT. English, Country Dance Tune (6/4 or 6/8 time). G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody (in 6/4 time) was first published [1] in London by John Young, heir to the Playford publishing concerns, in his Second Volume of the Dancing Master, first edition, in 1710. Young retained the dance and tune in subsequent editions of 1714, 1718 and the final one of 1728. It also appears in Walsh and Hare's Second Book of the Compleat Country Dancing-Master (1719), and subsequent editions of 1735 and 1748.
