Subject: RE: While Shepherds Watched/Ilkley Moor
Greg will have to specify, then; but he did ask just for the tunes, not 'Shepherds' settings, so we don't yet know that there's any 'difference', subtle or otherwise.

I'd quite forgotten that I had posted 'Sweet Chiming Bells' to folkinfo, nearly six years ago now. That's the Stannington setting, copied from 'The Red Book': Jack Goodison's Collection of Local and Traditonal Carols; which also has settings for Old Foster, Old Foster/47th Psalm, Cranbrook, Pentonville, Sweet Christmas Bells, October, Lyngham, Crimond, Hail Chime On, Liverpool, and Lloyd. It's been reprinted again since the third edition of 2001, I think, and is certainly worth getting hold of.
