Lead by Lloyd.
I don't have it. Must be after either Terry or Hugill.

Lead by Lloyd.
I don't know the source, and I suspect Lloyd fooled around with this one a bit.
The melody is similar to what's in Terry, but I suppose it might sound more "modal" because of the harmonization. Incidentally, the Spinners' version, in which I think the traditional melody was inadvertently changed, sounds more modal to me.

Lead by both.
Harmonizing the lead is a weird choice.
