Pirate’s Hornpipe

This lovely hornpipe has been published in Eb Major in Köhler’s Violin Repository, Book 3, 1885, p. 263 as well as in G major in Ryan’s Mammoth Collection (1883) under the titles “Occidental Hornpipe” (G major, p. 202) and “Holmes’ Hornpipe” Eb major, p. 226).
I really like it, especially the 2nd part.
Enjoy !
