Tune of the Day: Lord Nelson's Hornpipe

Traditional English hornpipe

This tune was first published in London by Thomas Preston in his Twenty-Four Country Dances for the Year 1800. At that time Horatio Nelson had newly won perhaps his most decisive victory over the French at the Battle of the Nile (1798). Among other honors, he was awarded the title Baron Nelson of the Nile, and thus became “Lord Nelson”.
