delphinium Lyr Req: Bannero (Reynardine) (7) Bannero (Reynardine) 24 Aug 02


After reading the Reynardine thread here I listened to the various recordings we have – thanks again Mudcatters for the inspiration as well as all the information. But now I have a question: can someone tell me why the Muckram Rakes version of Reynardine is called Bannero? It's on the Warbles, Jangles & Reeds album, and the song title reads "BANNERO (Reynardine)". Who or what or why is a Bannero?

Liner notes say the words are trad, collected by Roy Harris in Nottinghamshire. They seem pretty standard (a no teeth version). The different thing (other than the title) is the tune they use – their arrangement of Verdi's Grenadiers March from Lewis Winstock's Songs and Music of the Redcoats. And it comes off very successfully, IMHO.
