Baz, how close is this tune to Jack Hall & Captain Kidd? I know it's from that family but can't do that midi thing. I have this in Peter Kennedy's 'Folksongs of Britain & Ireland' in Cornish too, do you know if it was origainally in Cornish? The reason for asking is that Kennedy has the tune going back to 1649 from "The Digger's Song", Roy Palmer has the tune for Captain Kidd & Jack Hall as to the tune of "Coming Down" which is in your English chorus of Bryn Cambron, maybe the English version was used fish & than translated to be sung in Cornish later. I would guess you have Kennedy's book, if not , let me know if you want the Cornish version. Barry
