Subject: RE: Binnorie
What is the usual tune to Binnorie? The one we do was considered ancient even at the time of The Northumbrian Minstrelsy, and the others I know are similarly effecting. More often than not you hear the Lay the Bent to the Bonny Broom melody (and refrains) misplaced from Child #1 & popularised by Pentangle as The Cruel Sister.
