Check out the track listing for his new Christmas album, If On A Winter's Night, which contains The Cherry Tree Carol, The Snow it Melts the Soonest, a Soul Cake song, and others.

Bizarrely, the Soul Cake Song is credited to (Music & Lyrics by Paul Stookey, Tracey Batteast and Elene Mezzetti), whereas the others are listed as Trad.

Ah - they've inserted the word "Christmas" - that will explain why it's not traditional. ;)

Bry, it's not Sting doing it - the Paul Stookey credited is Paul of Peter, Paul and Mary, so I guess that they attempted to copyright it 40 years ago, and the label is playing it safe by crediting them as the writers.

Unfortunately, this was quite common. There are loads of songs where Alan Lomax registered himself as the writer, and a fair few where Peter Kennedy did the same.

Any quick Google search for traditional song lyrics, will throw up such inspired lyricists as Loreena McKennit, Sinead O Connor, Celtic Woman etceteras.

Just saw Sting singing The Snow It Melts the Soonest on Jooles Holland's programme. Fair play to him for bringing a great trad song (from around Newcastle??) onto the box. I still love the version Anne Briggs did on her (i think) first album on Topic. Copy link below into address bar to listen. Luvlee natural voice she had.

As long as you put it down correctly as "Trad. Arr." by you, yes. In fact there's every good reason to: if you don't, somebody else who doesn't deserve it will get it from another copyrighted arrangement, or it will just go into the big pot that feeds the like of Paul McCartney & Elton John from the "unassigned" stuff. Best idea is change the title too.

As I understood the famous fallout of singing men between M. Carthy & P. Simon over Scarborough Fair when the latter nicked the former's arrangement and it appeared on record as by Simon, MC would have let it go if PS had credited it as "Trad. Arr. P. Simon". That's the modern-fangled folk process. We may tut-tut at it, but since Mr. Anon isn't around to get his royalty cheques, better a struggling folkie working to forward the music than fatcat pop songwriters who had nothing to do with it at all.

I've never been a particular fan of Sting until recently. I have never disliked his work, it's just never grabbed me. Then I was so impressed that he went out on a limb, tried to learn the lute and did the Dowland album. Now he's doing trad material. This is a man who follows his musical curiosity and takes the music seriously. As with Dowland, he has done his research. He has certainly won my respect. Buy his winter album. It's beautiful.

If Sting can get an album with a lot of trad material into the charts, then maybe, just maybe ...

There was a long thread on Mudcat about the origins of the song.

thread.cfm?threadid=16979#161608

The definitive answer is dated 21-01-00 and is by Malcolm Douglas - who else?

Briefly it dates back to Blackwoods Magazine (Edinburgh) and 1821.

The version most people sing now is probably based on Anne Brigg's version.

I saw Sting on TV too, wasn't overly impressed, but it motivated me to dig out the Dick Gaughan and Anne Briggs CDs to play again. I loved 'Message In a Bottle', 'Can't Stand Losing You' etc. at the time - whilst going to see Nic Jones, Carthy, June Tabor et al. How many viewers will track down 'The Snow It Melts the Soonest' and discover other treasures - as most of us folkies did at some time?

With his folkie beard   and hand jiving girl singers- The whole thing got right up my nose. Maybe that's just me. . I wasn't impressed by the arrangement either.

According to one of the biographies of Sting it stated that in the early seventies he sang under his own name, Gordon Sumner, singer/songwriter material in the folk clubs on the North side of the Tyne. Can't recall ever catching one of his performances however I did apparently see him as part of Last Exit at Newcastle City Hall around 1975 although I decamped to the bar 2/3rds of the way through their session.

Just seen sting perform on "later with Jools Holland" on BBC2.

I instinctively feel like resisting Stings forays into various genres, but I think he has found his niche in a credible deep and authentic way with this.

He was asked why he chose to include one of his songs on an album conatining songs going back as far as the 15th century and his response was that people have been making up songs for thousands of years and he wishes to include himself in that process and see hmself as part of a bigger picture - in other words reminding his fans that songwriting was not a late twentieth century phenomenonowned exclusively by the young and hip.

He seemed to love the song that he was singing and with good reason, besides which he was being supported by some awesome players, including a woman who played the harp and sang in what sounded like gaelic and who had a glorious and soulful singing voice.

He was very focussed on his music and on his band and seemed genuinely unconcerned about the hype and the chatter.

I enjoyed the whole show a lot but his song about christmas at sea set the scene and added a certai magic to the proceedings that I haven't seen or heard in a performance for a while - much less on TV.

At first I listened to some sound clips off the album and didn't like them at all, but I've listened again and also to some of the full songs available at the NPR link someone posted. I've changed my opinion. I think Sting does treat the songs with respect, and while he doesn't sing them like a dyed in wool folkie, my thinking is now "Good for him!" for trying something different.

I've been listening to this album a lot in the last week, and to my surprise, it's really grown on me.

Some things about Sting's singing and interpretation do grate/irritate, and he's clearly far more at ease singing his own compositions (one of which I found stunning, in good part due to Kathryn Tickell's fiddle-playing on it).

But mostly I'm really enjoying the songs, and the variety and thought he's put into it. And that "Newcastle" trad song is indeed lovely, started to learn it myself.

Some nice tunes on the Sting album. His approach is not exactly my cup of tea, but if you want to curl up by the fire on a winter's night, I think any of these cuts will lull you into a pleasant nap.
Sting is commercializing Folk music? Good for him. Or is a lack of commercial sales the proof of integrity when it comes to traditional music?

I should also caution that the same sleep-inducing quality that would make Sting's album a pleasant accompaniment for a winter's nap could make it absolutely deadly in your car's sound system on a long drive. After two bars of The Snow it Melts the Soonest I became so relaxed that I still have the imprint of the computer keyboard on my forehead.
