Thread Name: Hitchin May Day Song
Subject: RE: Hitchin May Day Song
As far as I know the Hitchin version only exists in text form from the early 19th century as published by Hone, Dixon etc. However most of the May Songs are pretty much the same and I doubt if the tune was much different from the well-known tune. There is a tune for a midlands version in Broadwood's collection recently reprinted by Lewis Jones of Birmingham. I can give you his contact details if you PM me.
