This is the second tune in a set starting with Wigsborough Hunt(on this site as ‘Hunting the Hare’). Will post the third tune ‘Jack in the Green’, tomorrow.
Hunting the Hare / The Wigsborough Hunt
Very similar to Sir Philip McHugh& The Funny Mistake [Different keys]in O’Neills M.ofI.
Tune No.426 on page 84 to be precise and interestingly enough, Hunting the Hare is no.433 on page 85. must have played Sir Philip many times but it never appealed to me, probably because of the key. I think ‘Irish Jig’ in D has more life.
The tune was published in Thomas Wilson - A Companion to the Ball Room (London, 1816, p. 31)
