Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Trad. - Rigs of the Time
Joe has beaten me to it with me own link. The ref to Villikins tune in the dated post concerns the "Soldier and Sailor" series, not the mare and foal. I had the mare and the foal from another singer way back in the sixties, and I seem to remember the late John Rennard being the source. Beyond that, regrettably, not much detail. I have no idea if a recording exists, but can certainly supply the dots as I'm still singing it. Thanks Joe also for the Moeran reference.
