Tune of the Day: Hook's Contra Dance

Traditional dance tune

This contra dance tune, possibly of American origin, appears in the music manuscript copybook (dating from around 1810) of Ann Winnington, a resident of New York City. The title probably refers to James Hook, a prolific English composer who held tenure at several of London's fashionable tea gardens as organist.
