I've got the complete Playford English country dance tunes book (Faber edition) and I've got the excellent "Three Extraordinary Collections" book, which comprises tune collections by Marsden, Daniel Wright and Walsh. I've also got Matt Seattle's 'Great Northern Tune Book', which is the Vickers manuscript.

Is there much in the 'John of the Green - the Cheshire Way" book that doesn't crop up in one of the aforementioned?

John Clifford, in his introduction, lists his main sources thus:

Collection of Original Lancashire Hornpipes ed. by Thomas Marsden, pub. by John Playford in 1705.

Third Book of the most celebrated jigs, Lancashire hornpipes, Scotch and Highland lilts, Northern Frisks, morriss's Cheshire rounds and hornpipes the bagpipe manner. To which is added the Black Joak, the White Joak, the Brown, the Read, and the Yellow Joaks. With a variety of Whims and Fancies of diff'rent humours fitted to the genious and use of Publis Performers. ed. anon, pub. by John Walsh, c. 1730.

An Extraordinary Collection of pleasant and merry humours, never before published, containing Hornpipes, Jiggs, North Cuntry Frisks, Morris's, Bagpipe, Hornpipes & Rounds, with severall Additional fancies added, fit for all those who play Public, pub. by Daniel Wright, c. 1715.

The Dancing Master, pub. by John Playford, after 1690 by Henry Playford and after 106 by John Young.

There would seem to be the potential for repetition but, as one of the main tenets of my life is "you can't have too many books", I'd say get it anyway!

Hope this helps.

Harry

Matt,

PM me your email address and I'll send you a jpeg of the tune index to John of the Green.

Ooooops - and it's sat right in front of me!

But, if I've made just one person feel superior today, it was worth the cock-up! ;0)
