GB/7b/13A New Garden Fields Version 2 of 2

File:GB-7b-13A.mid

File:GB-7b-13A.pdf

File:GB-7b-13A.xml

Notes on GB/7b/13A For anyone trying to learn/perform this piece it is important to note the exact words of George Butterworth as transcribed onto the PDF file (GB-7b-13A.pdf posted above). In particular his words "the same, from phonograph record" are important because the MS gives wonderful evidence of (a) the difficulty of notating source singers and (b) the differences between a field notation (GB/7b/13 above) and a field recording of what is allegedly the same thing (this tune, GB/7b/13A). The comment immediately below the sheet music that "most of the F's lie between sharp and natural--& the same often with the C's" is also very illuminating. The piece is longer than average because Butterworth and Vaughan Williams transcribed many (but not all) of the variants in full. This transcribed version also includes the rest of the variants; it needs to be checked against the original MS, which is unclear in places.


GB/7b/14 A Sailor in the North Countree

File:GB-7b-14.mid

File:GB-7b-14.pdf

File:GB-7b-14.xml

Notes on GB/7b/14 This possibly belongs to the same tune family as "The Curragh of Kildare."

GB/7b/16 The Blacksmith

File:GB-7b-16.mid

File:GB-7b-16.pdf

File:GB-7b-16.xml

Notes on GB/7b/16 The version of the "Blacksmith" in the Penguin Book of English Folk Songs is from Mrs. Powell in Herefordshire and has a melody closely related to that used by Mrs. Verrall for the "Valiant Sailor"; this latter was collected by Ralph Vaughan Williams and used as the hymn tune "Monks Gate"/"To be a Pilgrim." This version of the "Blacksmith" from Mrs. Verrall clearly belongs to the same tune family but is quite distinguishable from her "Valiant Sailor."
