Origin

The Portland Collection Vol 2 attributes this setting to Theodore Duguay, although it originates from a traditional hormpipe. Apparently a popular tune in contradance circles.

"~ originates from a traditional hormpipe." ~ ??? :-/

I suspect they meant ‘hornpipe’, eh?

I’ve also heard this tune on Stephen Walker’s FeisWorld 2 album. He plays the A and B parts in reverse order and the tune has had quite a few changes from the sheetmusic, though still very recognisable as this tune.

Re: Origin

Hmm. My typo seems permanently recorded. :-(
