Abby Sale origins of 'Two Ravens' (4) RE: origins of 'Two Ravens' 13 Aug 06

Don't neglect the US, travesty version, "Billie McGhee MaGaw." See, eg McCurdy on The Ballad Record" or Digitrad list above.

Today is an excellent day to consider the #26 since on le 13 août 1374, le duc Jean IV, rappelé par les Bretons, aborde à Dinard, accueilli par Jeanne de Penthièvre et par les barons, dans l'enthousiasme général. (August 13, 1374, the duke Jean IV, recalled by the Bretons, lands in Dinard, accomodated by Jeanne de Penthièvre and the barons, in general enthusiasm.)

Usual current tune for "Twa Corbies" is based on an ancient Breton war tune, "Al Alarc'h," (The Crow) arranged and first used for "Twa Corbies" by Morris Blythman. It was taught to him by Breton folk-singer Zaig Montjarr
