ABBOT OF CANTERBURY, THE - KING JOHN AND THE BISHOP (Child #45 Rev Ed #104) "Old Woman of Kingswear" - ROUD#302 - SIMPSON BBB 1966 pp172-6 - Tune used by Baring Gould for COLLY, MY COW

ABBOTS BROMLEY HORN DANCE, Staffordshire THE OLD TUNE was noted by Robert J.Buckley from "the fiddling of William or Henry Robinson, the wheelwright, who was famous at the time as the only man who could play the air". It was sent to Cecil Sharp who published it in SWORD DANCES OF NORTHERN ENGLAND Book 2 (London: Novello, 1912). In 1954 it was no longer played by the team, but instead they played an old tune passed on to them by the Bagot family, together with popular minstrel airs which the team regard as being more rhythmically suitable for present-day performances using a melodeon. However THE OLD TUNE, with its haunting quality, has frequently been used at Festival performances by members of The English Folk Dance and Song Society and The Country Dance and Song Society of America, who have performed it in the half-light at dusk, or under floodlights in a forest clearing. A similar tune, also played by Mr. Robinson and sent to Sharp, called THE FLAXLEY GREEN DANCE, was probably played for a similar dance in a neighbouring village. - Sharp published this in SWORD DANCES OF NORTHERN ENGLAND 1911 p36 as one of the tunes for the Swalwell, Earsdon and Beadnell Sword Dances. Other neighbouring villages mentioned on this recording include Admaston, Hoar Cross, Yoxall, Hamstall Ridware and Newborough in Needwood Forest. The custom takes place each year on the first Monday after the first Sunday after September the 4th, starting at about eight in the morning and finishing about seven in the evening. - Douglas Kennedy talks about the custom: FTX-481 (on 486 & 492) - Douglas FOWELL (mel) & Brian GRIMLEY (triangle) rec by PK 9/9/54 RPL 21149/ Jim FOWELL: FTX-110 "The Horn Dance" - Dialect: FTX-452 - Filmed by PK 1983: FF-1109
