Vinland Lyr Req: Southern Cross (7) RE: Lyr Req: Southern Cross 10 Feb 02


The Southern Cross appears in many collections - Gerald S. Doyles' "Old -time Songs of Nfld", Ken Peacock's "Songs of the Nfld Outports" and "Favourite Songs of Nfld". I collected a version myself in Placentia Bay in the 70's. There are several tunes to the lyrics, though the Doyle one is my favourite. I'm presently doing an arrangements of it, and can email a midi version if you'd like to hear it. Just PM me.

I'm quite sure Anita Best hasn't recorded it, though I think I heard her do a version - I'll ask her next time I see her.
