Rightly or wrongly, we tend to play Playford tunes like Childgrove, Parsons Farewell and possibly Grimstock in harmonic minor, but the original manuscripts didnít always indicate whether the seventh was intended to sharp or natural. I certainly canít think of any English tunes with a Phrygian flat second note, unless Dark Eyes originated here.
