Adam The Poacher

I learnt this very old tune (possibly Medieval but most likely Elizabethan) from a friend. He played it in the form AAB but it may just be a simple AB tune.

It should be played very slow as a march but there is no march submission option on this site so I thought hornpipe would fit as you can quite easily play this as a hornpipe too.

I really like the dramatic key change in this tune, the B part contrasts really nicely with the dark and haunting A part.

See this thread for a few more details about the tune:
