Tune of the Day: Cooper's Hornpipe

Traditional Scottish tune

This Scottish tune appears twice in Northumbrian musician William Vickers's 1770 manuscript, once as “Fox in the Dumps” and once as “Exciseman's Hornpipe”. The melody later appeared in a number of 19th-century English manuscripts, sometimes under the title “Swan's Hornpipe”.
