*Notes on GB/6a/77* The tune is modal. All occurrences of B in the MS are natural, so if the accidentals naturalising the Bs are removed the key signature is C major, not F major as in the MS. This leaves one accidental, in bar 9 (an F#), but this would seem to be a passing note. The root is D, suggesting Dorian as the mode; but the D above middle C is in the middle of the range of the tune, so this is not the (authentic) Dorian mode but the (plagal) Hypodorian.

*Notes on GB/6a/79* All occurrences of D in the MS are natural, so the key signature is in fact Eb major, not Ab major as written in the MS. The root is F, so the tune uses the Dorian mode. Note the subtle difference between this version and GB/6a/78, in that this one uses Ab whereas GB/6a/78 uses A natural.

*Notes on GB/6a/119* The notator has put a question mark over the second quaver in the sixth full
bar. He may have expected the note to be naturalised as in the first crotchet of the second full bar, which would have
made the tune modal (Mixolydian with root D).

*Notes on GB/6a/126* Two abc versions are given of Our Captain Calls Version 1. The first follows the MIDI, PDF and MusicXML transcriptions; it keeps all the barring from the original and only changes the 5/4 bars to 6/4. However, placing repeats in the middle of a bar like that is idiosyncratic and was probably done mostly for speed and efficiency and not so much for legibility. The second version amends the notation in the original MS; it moves the repeat over and makes some other changes in the meter patterns and bar lines. The second approach works well but since we cannot hear the source singer we can never know if the bar line changes match up with the stresses that she used.

The tune is in the Dorian mode (root E) in the key of D major. At the beginning, to balance up the notes, the dotted crochet has been replaced by a quaver with a fermata. The MIDI plays through twice, with the variant in the second half.

*Notes on GB/6a/156a* This is the first of two tunes, both listed as GB/6a/156 in the Take 6 catalogue. As notated by Butterworth the tune is in the Lydian mode, which is very, very rare. The editors have inserted a Bb into the key signature on the assumptions that:
1. Butterworth accidentally left it out, and
2. this is exactly the same tune as 154, with the very minor differences in the tune accounted for by the freedom of the
singer already alluded to in the notes on 154. See also Roud S317072 which indicates that "Young Caley" is a version of "Sovay."

In the MS there seem to be at least two pieces of paper, indicated in the poor lining-up of the manuscripts; there thus seem to be two notations: the original transcription and a later copy.

*Notes on GB/6a/156b* This is the second of two tunes, both listed as GB/6a/156 in the Take 6 catalogue. In the second full bar the pitch of the second crotchet in the upper variation, here transcribed as an E, is unclear; the justification for interpreting the note as an E is that there are other instances in the MSS where the note head does not clearly join the stem. Again, this tune seems to be a copy (or the original) of 155; the only difference is the time signature, which in this case does not alter the tune.

The tune remains unaltered; it is in the Dorian mode, root G, in the key of F major. *The Penguin Book of English Folk Songs* uses this excellent tune, communicated by Mr Dearling, as the melody for its version of "The Ship in Distress," wrongly citing Mr Harwood´s version (GB/6a/185) as its source. This version from Mr. Dearling is also familiar from the singing of Martin Carthy.
