Notes on Widdicombe Fair



According to Baring-Gould (ibid, p. xii-xiii of the Notes to Songs), the date of the words and tune "is probably of the end of the last century." (i.e. the 18th).

I have ignored the piano accompaniment and just given the air for the text. The air was arranged by Learmont Drysdale (1866-1909). Drysdale gives a time signature of 72 for a dotted crotchet.
