I know someone out there in Mudcat land will know this - in Vaughan Williams' Six Studies in English Folksong, what song is the basis of the second study in £b, Spurn Point? I've tried the usual places and can't find the answer.

This makes a connection I'd never thought of:

shipwrecks and school attendance

"Sorry miss, I had to take the day off to help mum and dad with the looting".

Thanks folks - the song, apparently, is also known as The Wreck of the Industry.

Check out Yorkshire Garland website ~ This song is in Steve Gardham's repertoire and if I remember rightly also included in Pete Coe and Alice Jones songs now included as 5 Fingers Frank as an audio file

YG provenance from SG is on the YG yorkshirefolksong.net site

There is also a lengthy article on the origins of the song on the Mustrad website.

Thanks to Tim listened to the Youtube recording. That tune is better known as 'Lord Franklin' or 'McCaffery' and is different to the tune I sing which I believe came from the EFDSS journals. On reflection I like the Franklin tune better but I already sing that anyway.

Just a suggestion but it might be useful to future searchers if this thread were renamed 'Wreck of the Industry'.

In the meantime, we're told we can rename our own post to a thread to allow it to be found under the alternate name.

Thanks, maeve
I didn't want to do that as I am not the OP.
