Graham, sorry I missed this before. I have Dave Webber and Annie Fentiman singing it on their new CD, "Constant Lover". YOu want words? tune? or did you just need the source?
They attribute it to William Barnes/Ralph Vaughan Williams, so it seems like it might be available in the classical market as sheet music.
What's your pleasure?
Blessings,
Barbara

Thanks for the help..... I was going to record it but if Dave and Annie have already done so then I won't bother then..I'll speak to them about it next time I see them, probaly at May Day in Padstow.

It's a lovely song, Graham, and somehow I don't think its gotten overperformed yet. Perhaps if those two are from your locality it may make a difference, but I wouldn't mind Linden Lea getting more widely distributed. I would love to hear your version. I hadn't thought that by responding to your query, I would be dissuading you from recording it.
Blessings,
Barbara

C'mon Barbara, you've got us all interested now. I think the Psych sequence goes: Awareness - Interest - Desire - Arousal - Action. In the interests of our safety, maybe you could please provide the words and tune just to keep the rest of us under control.

Interested, John

RVW wrote the music for "Linden Lea" in 1901, but he lived till 1958, so take notice that his stuff is still in copyright, and can't be recorded without royalties to his estate, whoever they are. The words, by the way, are by William Barnes (1800-1886), rector of a parish in Dorset; his dialect poems were gathered in 1879. The text usually sung is actually a "normalised" version of what was originally in good Dorset dialect.

Patience, John, I've got a busy couple days coming up before I can get to it. Sounds like some other folk might have the words/tune around too, hmmmm?
Blessings,
Barbara

I'm so pleased that everyone has become so interested in my enquiry. Yes please Barbara could you supply words once you have transcribed them..... I could give Dave a ring or even acquire them from the RVW library but this way is much more interesting don't you think?

By the way Murray as a professional folk artist I'm OK with copyright law / performing rights etc so don't worry thanks for your help and info. as well....Graham

Well gang, I've got the tune, and I am seeing that what makes it lovely is the harmony, but can we do that here yet?
Words ought to be a piece of cake (that's very easy for any of you that don't know) compared to the tune.
I can post the two parts separate I suppose. What do you think?
Blessings,
Barbara
