Subject: RE: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
They are an odd (and haunting) pair of tunes - I can't think of any others like them. That initself doesn't mean too much - but can anyone else?

The fact that William (or Henry) Robinson was said to have told people he was playing an old tune, rather than one he'd made up wouldn't rule out him having actually adjusted them to match his own tastes.
