Train of artillery, dukes hornpipe and waterloo dance

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Today I uploaded a couple of videos of a few of my favourite tunes. They are played on one of my own instruments, a G/D wolverton. Just recorded on my laptop so the sound quality is not great but I hope to further popularise these tunes as few people seem to know the train of artillery and the dukes, the waterloo dance being more common generally.

 

The Dukes hornpipe in D and the Waterloo dance also in D

Jake--

 

Very nice! 

 

FYI, re Train of Artillery, Anahata has written, "It was the official quick march of the Royal Artillery until 1706 when it was replaced by the tune we now know as "The British Grenadiers",  and he also says, "I've just discovered the first half of the tune elsewhere as "The Grenadiers' Train of Artillery", while the second half is "The Marquis of Granby's March"."   His version, where this is written in the description, is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGcWPJ0q2VQ .  There's sheet music for The Grenadiers' Train of Artillery (from 1765!) at https://digital.nls.uk/special-collections-of-printed-music/archive/94689964 at the bottom of the page and for The Marquis of Granby's March in the same book at https://digital.nls.uk/special-collections-of-printed-music/archive/94689880 .

Thank you for this Daniel, I knew two of the parts were another tune but I did not know what tune. I did actually first hear the "set" as I think we will have to call it from Anahata, in a session and then learned it from the youtube video. I have saved the sheet music you posted for reference. What a set! Always loved it.
