T:Washington’s March [1]
M:C
L:1/8
S:William Sidney Mount (1807-1868) manuscripts
N:Mount dates his manuscript page for this tune “Stony Brook (Long Island, New York).
N:August 30th 1843.” At the top right of the page is the note “Old Music.” Professor
N:Samuel Bayard (1981) describes this tune as an “international tune” often played as a
N:march, although sometimes utilized for dancing. He finds that it appears twice in
N:Glasgow publisher James Aird’s Selections of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs
N:782), Vol. II, No. 152 (the tune does not seem related to my ear), and Vol. III, No.
N:544. Kennedy (vol. 2) gives it as “The Golden Farmer.” Somewhat distanced Irish
N:hornpipe versions appear in O’Neill’s Music of Ireland as “Tomorrow Morning” and in
N:the Roche Collection (vol. II) as “The Black Horse.” Continental versions can be
N:found in Boehme (1886, No. 345) given as a Dutch Dance, in Forestier & Anderson
N:Norway Music Album, 1881, No. 5, pg. 114) as a wedding march, and in the Journel
N:of the Welsh Folk Song Society (Vol. 2, Pt. 1, p. 40) in a vocal set. Bayard’s own
N:version was collected in the field from a Juniata County, Pennsylvania, fiddler named
N:Samuel Losch in the 1930’s. Other American versions are printed in Ford (“Exhibition
N:March No. 1”) and in Ryan’s Mammoth Collection (1883) as the hornpipes “Morning
N:Fair” and “Texarkana.”
