Subject: Derwentwater's Farewell
From: jelve@kwic.com
Date: 20 Nov 99 - 09:10 PM

I love this melody and have heard it used by Bobby Watt in "The Girl I Left Behind" and in Garnet Rogers "11:11". I fumble at playing the mandolin and would like the sheet music so that I can play it. I now have a copy of the lyrics to Derwentwater's Farewell, thanks to Mudcat. Can anybody help? Teresa

teresa - you can download the midi from the mudcat, and with the help of a computer program (such as Noteworthy composer) convert it to sheet music. if you are not up to it, it's possible a request to the cat would get someone who would do it for you....

Hi Teresa, did you give a listen to the Midi of Derwentwater's Farewell in the database & then give a listen to the many midi's of the Girl I Left Behind (I don't know about Garnet's "11:11") I don't hear any similarities (but that don't mean squat). I've only heard D's.F. done very slow & durge like, Lou Killen did a great 'short' version, in 1978 of this on his "Old Songs, Old Friends" LP on Front Hall records. I fell for this over 20 years ago when I first heard Lou sing it. I believe there's an old thread on this but I don't know how you'd find it. Barry

I have a mid and Child's information on the ballad at Lord Derwentwater's Farewell (http://www.contemplator.com/folk5/derwen.html).

I got the single line melody from a small book named A Jacobite Legacy ISBN 09525305 03 and John did the midi from that.
