Thread Name: Origins: Simple Gifts / 'Tis a Gift to be Simple
Subject: RE: Lyrics request: A Gift to be Simple
McGrath, perhaps I'm being stupid but who wrote the melody?

Also, I am puzzled by what you said about Sydney Carter. I have always viewed his words as a hymn and I am surprised that a Christian (which I thought he was) should be wanting royalties...
