PRINCE ALBERT'S HORNPIPE [2]. Scottish, Canadian, American; Hornpipe. C Major (Cole): D Major (Messer). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune was first printed in Boston publisher Elias Howe's Musician's Companion, Part 3 (1844), where it is attributed to one E.L. White. Edward Little White (1809-1851) was a journeyman musician-composer in the mid-1800's in the greater Boston region, a teacher of the piano forte and organ. He was a prolific author of numerous instrumental and sacred and secular vocal publications, including Organ without a Master, (Oliver Ditson Company), Cecillian Glee Book (1858, Boston music publishers Russell & Fuller), the Boston Melodeon (1846), Mother's Assistant and Young Lady's Fried (1846, Elias Howe Co.), Young America's Collection, and so on. White is today best remembered for his popular songs on native American subjects, such as "The Blue Juniata" and "The Sachem's Daughter."



"Prince Albert's Hornpipe" honors Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha [1] (1819-1861), who married his cousin, Queen Victoria, in 1839.
