Haste to the Wedding - D MajorJig

Author: Uncertain
Origin: England

The tune was introduced under the name "Come, Haste to the Wedding" in the pantomime The Elopement staged in London in 1767. However, it also appeared under the title "The Small Pin Cushion" in cellist-composer James Oswald's Caledonian Pocket Companion, Book 10 (London, 1760) and other publications that predate the pantomime. Oswalds may have been its composer, but its ultimate provenance remains unclear. The tune arrived in the New World soon afterwards, as evidenced by its inclusion in a 1778 notebook of a Boston fiddler who had been an officer in the Continental Army.
