It seems the British Lib. files are NOT working at present; don't know why.....but I did find this note on the Bans of Green Willow page..:
Of the Cylinder Recording:
This was not made in 1909, nor was it recorded by George Butterworth.
It was recorded in Basingstoke Workhouse in August 1906 by Charles Gamblin and George Gardiner. In 1909 Ralph Vaughan Williams transcribed the cylinder into musical notation, which the EFDSS published as being collected by him. It should, however, be ascribed to Gamblin and Gardiner. George Butterworth played no part in the collection, but he did use this version at the end of his Idyll: The Banks of Green Willow (from bar 139).
