INSPIRING HORN, THE. English, Air (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The title of the song is "(Hark,) Hark the Joy Inspiring Horn," printed in several late 18th century publications, such as Longman's Pocket Book for the German Flute and Cahusac's Compleat Tutor for the German Flute, both published in London in 1778. George Willig published the song around 1805 in Philadelphia, calling it a hunting song and attributing it to R. Taylor.
