MANCHESTER HORNPIPE [1]. AKA and see "Hastton's Hornpipe," "Lincoln Hornpipe," "Morning Fair," "One Eyed Fiddler," "Rickett's Hornpipe," "Sailor's Hornpipe (2)," "New College Hornpipe (1) (The), "Quadrille de Berthier 3ème partie," "Yarmouth Hornpipe." English, Scottish, Irish; Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB (most versions): AB (Honeyman). Although key of 'D' versions predominate the hornpipe is sometimes played in the key of 'G'. The tune was widely popular in the British Isles under a variety of titles and appears in numerous fiddler's manuscripts from the very early 19th century. Lincolnshire musician Joshua Gibbons included it in his 1823-26 music manuscript book simply as "Hornpipe No. 101," set in the key of 'F' major (Gibbons has another tune called "Manchester Hornpipe," but it is unrelated). Another version appears as "Yarmouth Hornpipe" in George H. Watson's (Swanton Abbott, Norfolk) manuscript of 1850-1880. Honeyman (1898) notes it should be played as a "Newcastle Style" hornpipe, a style he highlights in his tutor.
