HANOVER WALTZ. English, Waltz (3/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB.

Source for notated version: Ship's fiddler William Litten, who compiled his manuscript music book during a voyage with the East India Fleet from 1800-1802. Unfortunately, little is known of Litten. The manuscript came into the possession of mariner Allen Coffin, who may or may not have been a shipmate, who brought it back with him when he returned to his home in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts , early in the 19th century [Huntington].

Printed sources: Huntington (William Litten's Tune Book), 1977; p 33.
