Grand March in the Battle of Prague / Liverpool Hornpipe / Wellington Hornpipe
[trad. arr. Martin Carthy & Eliza Carthy]
Waterson:Carthy play these tunes on their second album Common Tongue. On the second and third hornpipe, they are accompanied by Saul Rose, MacLaine Colston and Barnaby Stradling. Martin Carthy commented in the sleeve notes:
The Grand March in the Battle of Prague, The Liverpool Hornpipe and The Wellington Hornpipe come from a collection called The Ironbridge Hornpipe from the manuscript of John Moore put together by Gordon Ashman, and are good examples of the kind of tunes assiduously being dug out by modern players looking for strong repertoire.
