TOM HILL'S HORNPIPE (Cornphíopa Thomáis a Chnoic). AKA - "Tom of the Hill," "Tommy Hill's," "Tommy Hill's Favourite," "Susan Harris." AKA and see "Bryant’s Favorite Hornpipe,” "Byrne's Hornpipe (1). Irish, Hornpipe (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was recorded for Victor Records by County Sligo fiddler Micheal Coleman in New York in 1927 (ably accompanied by pianist Ed Geoghegan)). It is the second tune in a medley of tunes recorded under the title "Tommy Hill's Favourite," following "Byrne's Hornpipe (1)." Coleman began the tune on the second strain perhaps, as fiddler Randy Miller suggests, “as a way to add interest to the medley whose two tunes both have ‘A’ parts in the key of D and ‘B’ parts that begin on an E note within the dominant chord.”
