Tune of the Day: Reynardine

Traditional Irish hornpipe

This hornpipe appears in Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. The tune was obtained from manuscripts in the possession of Chicago Police Sergeant James O'Neill, originally from County Down, Ireland.

It appears to be based on an Irish slow air of the same name, dating back to at least the mid-19th century.
