Thread Name: Tune Req: Dives & Lazarus + Brigg Fair
Subject: Dives & Lazarus/Brigg fair etc
Hello again, long time - no chat.

A year or more ago I was hunting for info on "The Unquiet Grave". I've found quite a bit since then, including nurerous tunes to the same words or variations on the words, and different usages of the tune I originally started with. I'm trying to expand my research but I still have a problem with some references that have been passed onto me.

I still can't find any actual words about Dives and Lazarus. Anybody know of any (with any tunes they might know to them).

Also I'm told that "Brigg Fair" and "Come all ye faithful Christians" are to the same or similar melody. Any words and tunes out there?

Incidently, I am aware of the "Star of the County Down" conection (thanks to LaMarca) of which I discovered I possess a 78rpm, but in a different time signature to that in DigiTrad's data base.

abc files are good. Midi files I can now read but not print out.
