NSC Bring on the dirges (songs) (45) RE: Bring on the dirges 11 Dec 98


How can you call 3 score and ten a dirge. It's a very good chorus song relating events which actually happened and was first printed in Grimsby around the 1890's as a poem. Itwas collected by the Waterson's in the 50's in the Robin Hood Bay area as a song.

Louis Killen gives a a great rendition on the first of his Chanty trilogy CD
