Subject: RE: Tune To When The King Enjoys His Own Again
Oh Lord I thought I was the only one in the world who cared about this tune. I'm at work & can't check my library but Chappell "Popular Music of Olden Times", Dover reprint from about 1960 or so, has it printed. What blows me away is this: the tune is the SAME tune that the New England fifing books give as "The World Turned Upside Down." And ever since then I have wanted to know-- just what DID the band play at Yorktown. Was it a big joke on the victorious army? Pete
