Hornpipes with a “Reel-like” quality
Hello. I always thought of Hornpipes as very bouncy. Then I heard De Danann’s recording of "The Rights of Man" and "The Pride of Petravore", and I noticed something very peculiar. The way they play the Hornpipes is different to say the least. They have a very "Reel-like" quality to them. If that makes sense. The bounciness is still there, but it’s very subtle.

I’m just curious if this is a normal thing. If playing Hornpipes with a subtle bounce is preferred over playing Hornpipes with a very obvious bounce.
