GUEST,John Hill Origin: After the Ball (from Frances Black) (40) RE: After the ball, Frances Black 26 Aug 02

Thank you for agreeing with me Murray. I would either vote for incompetance or a couldn't care less attitude that seems to to be prevalent among many "folk" singers these days. In most cases the "singers" have no knowledge of musical notation and make excuses for any deviations by pretending that some fairly recent song has been passed down by oral tradition in some way. I mentioned "The Rose of Allandale" previously because any written music to this song will show it to be in 4/4 time ... yet so many sing it incorrectly in 3/4 time...and with the chorus having the wrong melody.
