Subject: RE: Tune To When The King Enjoys His Own Again
Chappell is pretty much out of date ofr 16th and 17th century broadside ballad tunes. Claude M. Simpson's 'The British Broadside Ballad and Its Music', 1966, is the standard now for these. All 540 tunes in this, with a few additions, are given as ABC's on my website. In the CNTYDAN1 file on my website you will find another title for Martin Parker's "When the King enjoys his own again". The song was sung at a gala reception for Bonnie Prince Charlie in Edinburgh in 1745.

It's been much debated just what was played at Yorktown, as there are 3 songs, I think, that have "The World turned Upside Down" in them.
