Tune of the Day: All Hands Hoy

Traditional English tune

This reel appears in the second volume of Samuel Thompson's Compleat Collection of 200 Favourite Country Dances, first printed in London in 1765. “All hands hoy” is a naval expression used to assemble a ship's company, basically equivalent to “All hands on deck”. The tune also appears in print under the title “All Hands High”.
