"The Loyalist(s) Hornpipe," a member of a large hornpipe family, is 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 Waverton, near Wigton, Cumbria, 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." See also note for "Kershaw's Hornpipe."
