MISS LACEY'S HORNPIPE. AKA and see "Henry's," “Mona's Delight," "Organ (The).” Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune bears some resemblance to an untitled Pennsylvania collected reel (Bayard {Dance to the Fiddle}, 1981; No. 100, p. 59). Francis O'Neill's air "Snow Storm (The)" is a version of the tune, and the first strain is cognate with County Leitrim piper and fiddler Stephen Grier's untitled "Hornpipe (55)." See also the Manx cognate "Mona's Delight," which itself is based on the dance tune "Goddesses (1)" published by John Playford in 1651. Although quite distanced, it may be that "Miss Lacey's" is also a derivative. Researcher Jean Duval also notes the second strain of "Miss Lacey's" is reminiscent of Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard's "Cotillon a huit."
