Subject: RE: While Shepherds Watched/Ilkley Moor
My late father-in-law used to be go out on the streets door to door with a brass band in East Lancs at Christmas. He had a theory that the usual local tune "Shaw Lane" (not the only local one) was usurped by "Winchester Old" as a tune for "While Shepherds" mainly because "Winchester Old" was over quicker!
