Thread Name: Tune Req: Dives & Lazarus + Brigg Fair
Subject: RE: Dives & Lazarus/Brigg fair etc
The Star of the County Down tune (Lazarus in Broadwood and Maitland's 'English County songs' and elsewhere), Gilderoy, and many others in the family, popped up on a different list about 1 - 2 weeks ago. Sine then I've seen Bronson's headnote to "Dives and Lazarus" (Child #56) where many songs using the tune are noted, but he says his list is by no means exhaustive. "Gilderoy" in a copy of c 1726, seems to the the oldest version. That's the copy of Gilderoy in the broadside ballads tunes on my website.
