lamarca Help: Four and Twenty Ponies / Smuggler's Song (29) RE: Help: Four and Twenty Ponies 22 Mar 02

An earlier thread about Kipling poems set to music is here; in it, Mary Garvey gave a link to the Kipling Society's database of tune settings for Kipling poems. since your version of Smuggler's Song came from your granny, she may have sung one of the older tune settings. The Kipling site lists 9: 1. Peter Bellamy's 1972
2. Sir Adrian Boult 1912
3. L. Dampier ?
4. Paul Edmonds 1920 5. Marshal Kernochan 1911 6. Chris LeFleming 1950 7. Charles G. Mortimer 1914 8. Max Muller 1907 9. Michael Mulliner 1918

I wish there was an easy way to find the source for the tunes listed in the Kipling site!
