Orac Origins: The Rose of Allendale / Allandale (47) RE: Origins: The Rose of Allendale 25 Nov 02

The spelling of this should be Allandale. Allendale is in England and is a completely different place from the Scottish "hightland cot" refered to in the song. All the "Allendale" mis-spellings are fairly recent. There are plently of printed 19C sources for this 1835 song but all that I have ever seen spell it Allandale. Please also note that as I pointed out in an earlier thread it should be sung in 4/4 time. If you have any printed music for this song you will maybe notice that.
