The Gleeman

Notes on Searching for Lambs



This is #96 in Sharp's Folk Songs from Somerset series (the fourth). The words and the air were taken from Mrs. Sweet, of Somerton.

Regarding the arrangement, I have taken the liberty of removing the piano accompaniment and only providing the air for one verse. I have also started on a partial bar (which is not present in Sharp's arrangement as he has a two-bar lead-in).

Karpeles (1987)KCS has a version of this song apparently taken from the same source (p55). However there are one or two subtle differences between her version and Sharp's, both with regards the air and with regards the text.
