HICK'S HORNPIPE ("Crannciuil Uigs" or "Crannciuil Uí h-Iocaig"). Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. O'Neill never heard anyone else, save his source Hicks, play the tune, nor could he find it in previously printed sources. The first strain of Isidore Soucy's "Quadrille canadien -- 4ème partie" is similar to the second strain of "Hick's Hornpipe," particularly in the first three measures. Jean Duval also finds similarities between "Hick's Hornpipe" and Isidore Soucy's "Gigue du carnaval (1928), but perhaps not a cognate relationship.
