Tune of the Day: Hope's Hornpipe

Traditional English tune

This hornpipe is taken from the 1840 music manuscript book Multum in Parvo, or A Collection of Old English, Scotch, Irish, Welsh Tunes by John Rook, a musician from Warerton, England. Rook was a multi-instrumentalist, judging from the cover picture of his collection, and played what appears to be the Northumbrian small-pipes, bugle, flute, fife and fiddle, among others, as he indicates the collection is “for his amusement on the above instruments”.
