This is an English folk song first collected in Bere Regis, Dorset in 1905. Whilst the words tell of a depressing tale, musically the modal melody and associated harmonies are typical of those commonly used by both Ralph Vaughan Williams and Gustav Holst in some of their more popular works. Indeed, I have included a deliberate nod in Holst's direction;
listen carefully.
