Tune of the Day: Tom Jones

Traditional English jig

No, this tune has absolutely nothing to do with the famous Welsh singer! It is, in fact, almost two centuries older than him. It is named after the title character of Henry Fielding's 1749 comic novel The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling. Its numerous appearances in mid-18th-century publications and musicians' manuscripts seem to indicate that it was a very popular melody in England during that period.
