LADS AND LASSES [1]. English, Triple Hornpipe (3/2 time). England, North-West. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The melody was printed by John Young in his Third Volume of the Dancing Master (London, 1726, p. 78), and by Walsh & Hare in The New Country Dancing Master, Third Book (London, 1728, p. 58). An air in Robert Drury's Rival Milliners (1737) is set to "Lads and Lasses", and may be this triple hornpipe. It begins "Take me, try me, For sincerely..."
