Tune of the Day: The Wild Irishman

 Traditional English jig

This jig setting seems to predate the reel of the same name that has been quite popular in Ireland, at least in printed collections. All versions of this “Wild Irishman” appear to have developed from a melody printed by London music publisher Henry Playford in 1688, titled “Fourpence Ha'penny Farthing.”

Tune of the Day: The Bonnets of Blue

 arranged for two flutes

Today we propose a nice arrangement for two flutes of “Hurrah for the Bonnets of Blue”, taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine (Philadelphia, 1833). Therein, the piece is attributed to English musician Alexander Lee, but it is uncertain whether the melody was Lee's original invention or he borrowed it from English tradition.

Tune of the Day: Allegro by Bellinzani

 from Recorder Sonata in B-flat major

This is the second movement of the ninth sonata from Sonate a flauto solo con cembalo, o violoncello (“Sonatas for solo flute with harpsichord or cello”) by Italian Baroque composer Paolo Benedetto Bellinzani, originally published in Venice in 1720.

This movement has actually no tempo indication in the original manuscript, but it sometimes appears as an “Allegro” in modern editions.

Tune of the Day: The Friendly Visit

 Traditional Irish/English hornpipe

The first known appearance of this tune in print is in Volume 4 of James Kerr's Merry Melodies (ca. 1880), as “English Clog Hornpipe”.

The tune is very popular in County Donegal, Ireland, where it is often played in A major. It has also had enough currency in Northumberland to be considered local, with origins perhaps in the Irish migrant labor attracted by opportunities in the Tyneside dockyards. One local Northumbrian name for the hornpipe is “Whittle Dene”.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
