Players of a certain age will be familiar with this Trumpet Hornpipe, although not perhaps by its original name. It was used as the theme tune to the BBC’s popular children’s series ‘Captain Pugwash‘.  In America it may be better known as the Thunder Hornpipe.

A (very) little – but perfectly formed – freebie for all you buccaneering bassoonists!  Great as an encore.
