Subject: RE: Tune Req: Newgate Stone
Thanks for the music Leeneia, it bears a strong resemblence to what Danny sang in the video link at the start of this thread. Suggesting that he was obviously repeating what he had heard/read and not making it up on the spot.
I can't find any reference to a tune by this name on thesession.org, or any google reference. Can I ask how you came by the music?
With the advent of google books, it is usually easy to find scored music for most popular ballads of the 1700/1800s.
