GUEST,Deb Tune Req: Melody Devon plough chant (8) Tune Req: Melody Devon plough chant 05 Jun 17

I'm searching for any trace of the melody for the chant derived from plainsong, probably a Mass, that the ploughman and his boy would do in Devon to the oxen as they ploughed- the oxen reportedly expected this 'work' song, and would not work without it. The chant was for two voices, in harmony.
