Back to Hope's Hornpipe
HOPE'S HORNPIPE. English, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. From the 1840 music manuscript book of John Rook (Multum in Parvo, or A Collection of Old English, Scotch, Irish, Welsh Tunes), a musician from Warerton, England. Rook was a multi-instrumentalist, judging from the cover picture of his collection, and played what appears to be the Northumbrian small-pipes, bugle, flute, fife and fiddle, among others, as he indicates the collection is "for his amusement on the above instruments."
