Desert Dancer origin? RVW Danby hymn 'Tis Winter Now (14) RE: origin? RVW Danby hymn 'Tis Winter Now 24 Apr 14

Thanks so much, Brian! That's wonderful. Obviously it's not something that I had actually heard before; probably the similarity to "The Water is Wide" and general English trad feel (relative to some other songs in the Unitarian hymnal!) made me think so.

I love that the "extra verse" is one that got transported to the American "Down in the Valley". I'll certainly have to share it with the music director at church -- he loves to give everyone the background to the hymns (beyond what the book gives).
