Mo the caller Tune Req: Multiple tunes: 19th c. popular songs (8) RE: Tune Req: Multiple tunes: 19th c. popular songs 03 Feb 19


Interesting. Presumably the 'Typical tune of Zanzibar' was so well known then that they didn't need to print it and probably didn't know the composer. A folk song of it's day perhaps.
It's a bit like interpreting dance instructions, everyone in 1650 knew what was meant by 'sides', everyone in 1911 knew that 'right hands across' meant right hand star, but a modern reader can go astray.
