Tune of the Day: The Rival Hornpipe

 Traditional Scottish tune

This tune can be played either as a hornpipe or as a reel. It is taken from Ryan's Mammoth Collection, published in 1883.

The tune could possibly have been named for the clipper ship Rival, a name that appears in American Clipper Ships 1833-1858 by Howe and Matthews, and in fact a few other tunes in Ryan's also appear to be named after engineering or transportation accomplishments of the mid-19th century.

Tune of the Day: Amabile by Quantz

 from Sonata No. 3 in C minor

This is the opening movement of Johann Joachim Quantz's Sonata No. 3 in C minor for flute and continuo. While the piece appears without a tempo indication in manuscripts, some modern editions put the (almost certainly not original) marking “Amabile” on it.

Tune of the Day: Balmoral Castle

 March tune by James Scott Skinner

This march and its accompanying variations were composed by fiddler J. Scott Skinner after he visited the summer residence of Queen Victoria in Scotland, located between Braemar and Ballater on the river Dee in the Grampians. Skinner describes the music as a “March bright & teeming with life”. The first variation represents “a rush of water”, probably the river Dee as it runs through the castle's grounds.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
