The Gleeman

Notes on Barbara Allen



The air is the same as the previous one, but with the variant ending recorded by Kidson. The only think Kidson gives about its source is that it "is heard in the West Riding of Yorkshire".

It should be noted that the score for the complete air (with alternative termination) is not in Kidson - all he provides is the fragment; as below;

Barbara Allen Alternative Termination

I have made the replacement to provide the complete air. (Note - the fragment above is in the public domain).

The text is the same as for the previous variant.
