SECOND STAR HORNPIPE, THE. Scottish (?), Hornpipe (cut time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. The composition is attributed to G. Tate in Laybourn's Köhler’s Violin Repository vol. 2 (1881-1885). Unfortunately, there is no information that has surfaced on this composer, and thus the provenance of the tune is unknown. The earliest printing so far is in Laybourn's Köhler’s Violin Repository vol. 2 (1881-1885), so Tate was at least born prior to 1865.
