Tune of the Day: Lord St. Vincent

Traditional English hornpipe

The earliest appearance of this tune is in Thompson's Twenty Four Country Dances for the Year 1799. It subsequently appeared in several 19th-century publications and manuscripts.

The title honors Admiral John Jervis (1735–1823), Lord St. Vincent, a contemporary of the celebrated Lord Horatio Nelson's and himself a hero of the Napoleonic Wars and the victor of the Battle of Cape St. Vincent. The title “Vinton's Hornpipe”, by which the tune appears in some publications, is a probably a corruption of the original title honoring Jervis.
