Traditional English tune
This country dance tune first appeared in print in John Hinton’s Universal Magazine of Knowledge and Pleasure (London, 1757), followed by John Johnson’s 200 Favourite Country Dances, vol. 8 (London, 1758). It also appears as “Janey on the Green” in the 1770 music manuscript collection of Northumbrian musician William Vickers.
