Tune of the Day: The Hibernian Jig

Traditional Irish tune

This tune appears in the fifth volume of James Aird's A Selection of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs, first published in 1797. Although it is usually called a jig, tune collector Francis O'Neill (1922) remarked that “its emphatic swing and antique cadences proclaim this spirited strain a march”.
