Subject: Lyr Req: Two songs collected in Fragments
From: GUEST,Nick Dow

I've been listening to some of my field recordings, and there are a couple of songs I recorded from singers that were incomplete.
The first was 'The young countryman who kept company with me' to the tune of the Female Drummer.
The second was a Music Hall item, called 'Fire works', or 'They soon made an angel of him there'

A google search throws up my own recordings held at the British Library which is a bit awkward. Can anybody help Please.
Nick

The second one has 2 entries in the BL catalogue for sheet music (as well as your sound recording in BL Sounds). Here's one of them:

Title: They soon made an Angel of him there, etc. [With separate voice part.]
Author: T. W. Connor
Publication Details: London : Francis, Day& Hunter, [1902]
Language: Unspecified
Identifier: System number 004277920
Physical Description: 2 pt ; fol.
Shelfmark(s): Music Collections H.3983.j.(30.)
UIN: BLL01004277920

The title also got a mention in a Mudcat thread listing songs of TW Connor: Lyr Req: The Old Cracked Basin (T W Connor).

I'll have a look for the other later (though I didn't see it in the Roud index).

I've had a quick look at Roud, UCSB Broadsides, BL and American memory and can't find the other one by title. Can you post the first line - it might help.

Nick,
Your other song is one of the 3 songs with the title 'The Young Man from the Country'. Luckily it's the most common of the 3. You can see a Such copy at Bodleian Broadside Ballads, Harding B11 (4377). It dates from about 1860. There's also a copy in Roy's 'Ballad History Of England' if you've got a copy. p127

So you don't get the wrong one the first line is 'When first I went to service.'
