GUEST,Surreysinger Tune Kingsfold (34) RE: Tune Kingsfold 23 May 08


Hi Ruth ....
Nope ... he collected a _variant_ of the tune used for the words of Dives and Lazarus by Lucy Broadwood in Kingsfold, and it was that one which had the words for Maria Martin. When he came to arrange his Five Variations... he named it for the location where he collected the variant, and not for the location where the original tune which he'd appropriated from ECS came from ... otherwise I presume we'd all be referring to it as "Westminster"... or at least that's what I understand from Malcolm's following comment.... "I hadn't previously realised that, where RVW used melodies from other collectors, he still tended (though not invariably) to name them for places where he himself had collected forms of the same tune, even if he didn't actually use that version in the Hymnal."
Bacck to the hot box office desk and ticket sales....
