Tune of the Day: Every Man in His Humour

Traditional English jig

This melody was first published in the periodical The London Magazine, or The Gentleman’s Monthly Intelligencer, in 1752. “Every Man in his Humour” was a humorous comic play by Ben Jonson, written in 1598. However, the appearance of the title in the London Magazine of 1752 undoubtedly honors the successful revival of the play in 1751 by actor and producer David Garrick.
