Fancy that. All the more authentic for it, I should imagine. :wink:

I quite like that. Tuning seems fine to me.

I do have a quibble - the descending scale in the last line of the melody is not the tune. I think the crotchet minim rhythm is important in this piece.

Oh good grief! You've set me off now! I'm now trying to find sheet music for the original Thomas Mawdyke, three part version. I can't find it anywhere. You'd have thought that it would be readily available.

Any clue, anyone?

I agree. I learned the basic melody
from the singing of Tony Roberts
and Tony Barrand. Their version
wanders slightly from the original.
I made it into the easy-rocking teenage combo-
rennaissance dance band version ala Gryphon.
