Hoblander Lyr Add: Dark December (Graeme Miles) (8) RE: Lyr Add: Dark December (Graeme Miles) 14 May 12

just thought I'd add some observations. The Ramskyte recordings lyrics probably came from the Wilson's Horumarye, which as noted above was recorded in 1983. Those who know Graeme will be aware that his songs were and are constantly being refined, even now to an extent. I'm sure VirginiaTam as a big fan of Graeme's, would want the "preferred" lyrics as printed in Forgotten Songs Remembered. Not my classification but Graeme's. There are minor changes to each verse, and the score is probably a bit different to that which both the Wilsons and Ramskyte sing.
Dark December is one of the songs included in the Ironopolis Singers new show "Purple Acres" which features Graeme's songs and narratives about the Cleveland Hills and Dales and the North York Moors. You can see the show at Whitby Folk Week in August, as we have been very kindly asked back to the festival. News of the CD to follow.
