MISS WORGMAN'S HORNPIPE. AKA and see "Bricklayer's Hornpipe (1)," "Hornpipe (56)," "Jenning's Champion Clog," "Monogram Hornpipe," "Queen Hornpipe (The)." English, Hornpipe (2/4 time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Miss Worgman was an English actor and dancer for the stage in the early 19th century. The periodical Mirror of the Stage, Or, New Dramatic Censor (vol. 3, p. 175) gave a review of her performance at Bath during a divertissement between acts of The Barber of Seville:

...and Miss Worgman exerted herself in a manner that will always insure her success and applause. She acquires herself in the skipping-rope dance as well as we think it could be done; and her general abilities are considerable, and if properly exerted, will ultimately gain her public consideration.
