A song has been going through my mind all day long. I can only remember the first few lines (or maybe lines from the chorus - I don't know). Anyway, this is what I can remember:

Blow, blow thou winter wind Blow, blow thou winter wind Thou are not so unkind As man's ingratitude ....

Arg! That's all I can remember and I'll bet I've done that snippet about 1000 times today. I searched the database for blow, winter wind, and ingratitude, but had no luck. Thanks for your help.

Nice performance by the Folger Consort on the CD cited by Thespionage. However, this particular music was composed by Dr. Thomas Arne (1711-1748), so it's not what Shakespeare had in mind.

Britt,

I like Robin Williamson's version on the album, "Winter's Turning" as noted above in this thread. I've also heard a jazz version by Australian singer Cleo Laine. I like Williamson's better. Also I can highly recommend Barry Taylor's midi files which was recommended above - was that by Barry Taylor himself? Well he would be too modest to praise his own midi arrangements but they are the loveliest arrangements that I have found on the Web.

Also a lot of people pronounce the word wind (spelt "wynd" in the original) as "wined" as in "wined and dined" and they do this to rhyme with the word "unkind", but in fact it was probably the other way around. "Unkind" was probably pronounced "unkinned" (pronounced like "pinned") and "wind" pronounced as we know it now. The "y" in the "wynd" spelling doesn't mean that it should be pronouced as a "why" sound.

It makes more sense - as in ease of understanding - to promounce "wind" and "unkind" in the way that we say them rather than trying to prove a point which may be the wrong point. These words go back to Anglo-Saxon so that is the source of pronunciation guidelines.

Helen

I'm quite sure I've read that no one knows what tunes were used for Shakespeare's songs. The only exceptions are "There was a lover and his lass" and perhaps one other, whose name escapes me now.

For me, it adds to the pleasure of a Shakespeare play when someone composes new music.

I am in the midst of producing a NWC for Mudcat for this song, using Barry Taylor's excellent MIDI rendition of the version written by Dr. Thomas Arne (1711-1748). There are many, many implied slurred notes in the melody - which the MIDI version cannot provide - and hence there are many more dots than syllables.

Could someone please direct me to an MP3 version which includes the vocals so that I have a better chance of aligning the vocals with the dots.

It's a marvellous song, completely new to me, and the two part vocals look like a real joy to sing. As a bonus the chords are easy enough for a relative novice to play.

Regards, John

There's a version of this song in The Reliquary of English Song, which used to be a standard collection for young voice students to work from.

Anyone doing Shakespeare in college should consider going to the Music Dept. of the school and checking with the voice faculty there for sources for Shakespeare songs and coaching to help learn the necessary pieces.

I searched to this one on Google.com using the search term

"heigh ho the wind and the rain"

(including the double quotes for a phrase) and found heaps of sites with the words.


Wind and Rain
               Attributed to William Shakespeare

When that I was and a little tiny boy,
With heigh-ho, the wind and the rain,
A foolish thing was but a toy,
For the rain it raineth every day.

Chorus

With heigh-ho, the wind and the rain,
For the rain it raineth every day.

But when I came to man's estate,
'Gainst knaves and thieves men shut their gate.

Chorus

But when I came alas to wive,
By swaggering could I never thrive.

Chorus

But when I came unto my beds,
The toss-pots still had drunken heads.

Chorus

A great while ago, the world began,
With heigh-ho, the wind and the rain,
But that's all one, our song is done,
And we'll strive to please you every day.

With the xmas frenzy drawing nigh, and with it a desperate need for "seasonal but not xmas/religious" songs to include in programs, I thought I'd revive this thread.

The (first) Mudcat MIDI, Barry Taylor's interpretation and the sheet music at the Levy collection contain obvious deviations from the tune which appears most often and nearly identically in earlier sources. The Oxford Book of Carols (1928, not the New...) contains Arne's melody as it was usually printed, though I suspect the accompaniment is not Arne's--not surprisingly, since he probably scored it for a consort.

There is a nice performance of the Arne setting (with only major deviation) on YouTube by David Keith Jones:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdwYIemj6CI

The OBC also has an original glee setting by R.J.S Stevens who, unlike Arne, included Shakespeare's "Heigh ho" chorus. Thomas Linley, in his Shakespeare's Dramatic Songs (mid 1800's?), extended Arne's setting to include a "Heigh ho" burden, but I haven't managed to find the music for it, though it seems to have been well-received.

I've also found mentions of settings by Charles Wood, Samuel Webbe (c.1830), Whiting, R. Schachner (1865) and Robert Schumann. There are many modern settings, the best known being by John Rutter and Roger Quilter.

If I get ambitious, I'll post an ABC for Arne's melody unadulterated, and perhaps a MIDI of Stevens' glee, for which I haven't yet found a sound clip.

I wonder if Will had any specific tune in mind for this song, as many consider him to have had for some of the more apparently "tradition-referential" in some in his plays, such as The Wind & The Rain in 12th Night, and Ophelia's St Valentine's Day & How Should I Your True Love Know? in Hamlet. Anyone come across any such suggestion re Blow Winter Wind anywhere?

I once asked Norma Waterson, while I was doing some work on origins of songs in Shax's plays, where the Watersons had got their first verse for Hal-An-Tow, which does not appear in the version sung in Helston, and which is the same as the one sung by the Forester in AYLI "Take no scorn to wear the horn..."; thinking I might have discovered some previously unnoted link. She told me I had it the wrong way round ~ the Watersons themselves had inserted the stanza they had got from AYLI in their version because they thought it sounded nice there as an intro verse to "Robin Hood & Little John are all gone to the fair·O)" &c!.

Despite thespionage's statement that a setting from Shakespeare's time has been passed down, Ross Duffin in his Shakespeare's Songbook (where he presents the tunes known or assigns other, often ballad or lute tunes tunes) says that "No indication of the original music has survived" (He sets this, with a little repetition of the first refrain line, to Goddesses).

MtheGM - I didn't realise they'd interpolated that. Back in the 80s I was living in Ethiopia and was asked to do an evening of Shakespearian song for a drama group there. One of the things I did was Hal-an-Tow on the basis of that quotation!
