Subject: RE: Lady Mary / Palace Grand / The Sad Song
Confusion easily arises if one word or one line has been altered along the line of passage. We may end with an interpretation that is far different from the author's intent. The only information we have is Mrs. McCord's; we will have to go with it unless something new turns up.
Listening to Mrs. McCord sing the song in the Max Hunter Collection, I have a recollection of having heard the tune before. Now it will haunt me for a while. (The Contemplator midi is somewhat flat and characterless).
