Sailor's Hornpipe

Sailor's Hornpipe
This set is part of the following collections:


This is a very recognisable tune; it's used, for example, as the theme for the Popeye cartoons, and you hear it each year at The Proms, and at the beginning of the theme for the TV show Blue Peter. It's actually one of several tunes known as Sailor's Hornpipe, but its proper name is The College Hornpipe. The setting here is based on slightly simplified American versions.

This set is part of my Scottish Collection of tunes; for others, check out the Scottish Collection Index
