Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Strawberry Fair - old English trad.
The proposed DT text is the re-write by H Fleetwood Sheppard and Sabine Baring-Gould. I posted it in the thread indicated above, but this isn't my transcription; there is a typo in line 2 (it should be 'ware', not 'wares') and I provided proper source information, which the DT apparently doesn't intend to bother with. Nor is it from Mudlark's post (link above) which was rather eccentrically spelled.

It's very disappointing to see that the next DT revision will be including new unattributed and inaccurate entries, when full, correct information has been available in the Forum for at least 6 years; and is easily found via the search engine.

I wonder who 'NR' is? It's high time that contributors were identified by name.
