Yvonne Lyr Add: The Gown of Green (13) RE: Lyr Add: The Gown of Green 23 Aug 03

Matthew, the version of The Gown of green that Jane and Amanda sing is by Patrick O'Shaughnessy and is published in one of his books on 'Lincolnshire Folk Songs'. They too say that 'Green has often been symbolic of seduction or betrayal in folksong'.

I shall bring the CD for you when we next meet :o)
