Thread Name: Lyr Req: May Carol: 'Remember lords and ladies...'
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: May Song / Carol Title Unknown.
Keith Kendrick has just recently recorded this on a Wild Goose CD WGS 317 - Well Seasoned. It is the Derbyshire May Carol.There is a Cambridgeshire May Carol the tune of which was collected by RVW from Hoppy Flack of Fowlmere. It has words supplied by the local vicar at the time, of a rather heavily doom-laden sort.It is quite different, with a modal tune and no chorus.
