Subject: RE: Turtle Dove Pilgrimage
I was being facetious. The song originated c1686 in London.
Titled 'The Two Constant Lovers, or, The Prentice obtain'd his Master's Daughter by True Love and Loyalty'. Rewritten shortly after as 'The Unkind Parents; or, The languishing Lamentation of Two Loyal Lovers.'
