MITCHELL'S HORNPIPE (Crannciuil Micil). Irish, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Paul de Grae points out there is a "vaudeville" feel to this hornpipe, which may have led O'Neill to exclude the tune from his Dance Music of Ireland (1907), following criticisms that his Music of Ireland (1903) contained "non-native material".
