Tune of the Day: Bushy Park
by Ignatius Sancho
This tune was composed by British writer and musician Ignatius Sancho (1729–1780), and was first printed in his Twelve Country Dances for the Year 1779.
Bushy Park is the second largest of London's Royal Parks, after Richmond Park. The name was assigned by King Henry VIII in 1529, when he established it as deer-hunting ground.
