ROYNON'S DELIGHT. AKA and see "Beynan's Delight," "Boynun's Delight." English, Country Dance Tune (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. In addition to the printing by Samuel, Ann & Peter Thompson in their Compleat Collection, vol. 5 (London, 1788, prehaps as "Boynon's Delight" rather than "Roynon's..."), the tune appears in Longman, Lukey, & Broderip's Bride's Favourite Collection of 200 Select Country Dances, Cotillons (London, c. 1776) as "Beynan's Delight". The date of 1776 for the latter work is questionable, according to the late Bruce Olson, who determined that at least the last (fourth) section was from about 1781, while the last twelve pages of section three are the 24 dances for 1773.
