HMS Renown - A Hornpipe

 

Bagpipe lesson for HMS Renown - A Hornpipe
HMS Renown 1918 - Battle cruiser - Built at Fairfield's, Govan, Scotland, top speed 31.5 knots

 

The hornpipe HMS Renown, was suggested by a regular subscriber who felt that more hornpipes would be appreciated. I do not have many four parted hornpipes, but managed to find the music of this one that I heard and enjoyed many year ago when listening to it played by the Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band in their heyday under Pipe Major Donald Ramsay. The title of the tune is a good one for what is sometimes called the Sailors' Hornpipe for this branch of the music.

 

Lesson Pointers

 

Endeavour generally to relax and have good clear execution without clipping and over-pointing. Triplets must be clearly tripled without crushing. Simply roll along with the rhythm. Recommended tempo is about BPM 84 - 90 musically, or very slightly steadier if not quite up to it. Tempo for dancing is about 96 BPM with a more appropriate hornpipe tune for dancing.
