PRINCE ALBERT HORNPIPE [1]. AKA and see “Newcastle Clog,” “Newcastle Hornpipe (1) (The).” English, Hornpipe. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody is attributed to the 19th century Tyneside fiddler and composer James Hill (d. 1853), in the first volume of Kohler’s Violin Repository (Edinburgh, 1881). It may be that Hill composed it on the occasion of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's appearance at the official opening of the High Level Bridge and the Central Station in Newcastle on August 29th, 1850.

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1854.
