Bob Bolton Lyr Add: The original Waltzing Matilda (26) RE: Lyr Add: The original Waltzing Matilda 10 Jul 11


G'day Andrez,

Well ... no! The recent (post 2000) release of Christina McPherson's personal papers provides first-hand evidence of Christina's involvement in the setting of Paterson's words to the fragment of Bulch's arrangement of the musical setting of Thou Bonnie Wood of Graigielea that Christina remembered from its debut, back home in Warnambool.

This is quite relevant to the continuing arguments against the facts uncovered by Richard Magoffin and, subsequently detailed by Denis O'Keefe. The truth of the circunstances of composition was the original aim of Jim Dix ... back in 2000 - probably before the Christina McPherson papers were made public.

Regards,

Bob
