Martin Graebe Tune Req: The Mower/Ile (Isle) de France^^ (32) RE: The Mower/Ile (Isle) de France 27 Jun 01


Malcolm has covered off the Mower nicely so I won't add more on that. Baring-Gould did, though, collect two versions of 'The Isle of France' and it is another song that fascinates me because of the differences between the versions. For example, in one version the convict lives - in the other he dies and the coastguard sings his praises. I plan to do some work on this one when I've finished some of the other zillions of things I've promised people.
