TEMPLE HORNPIPE. AKA "Scotch Hornpipe (A)." Scottish (?), Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "Temple Hornpipe", perhaps referring to a Masonic temple, was printed in Elias Howe's Musicians Omnibus No. 6 & 7, printed in Boston around 1880 or so. A few years earlier the same tune appeared in George H. Coes' Coes Album of Jigs and Reels (1876) as the generically titled "A Scotch Hornpipe."

The first strain is similar to that of Chicago fiddler Edward Cronin's "Rogers O'Neill."
