SHEFFIELD HORNPIPE [1], THE. English, Hornpipe (cut time). England, Northumberland. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The town of Sheffield, Yorkshire, has been an industrial center in northern England for centuries. It has historically been especially famous for its knives and edged tools; the miller in 'The Reeves Tale' by Chaucer wore a Sheffield dagger in his hose. There was a long-vanished castle at Sheffield, on the site of the Castle Market and a former shopping center. It was the primary prison of Mary, Queen of Scots, throughout the 1570’s.
