So much food for thought. Thanks. Do you have a link for Wayfaring Stranger?

Have you heard this:

Does the tune ring any bells? Fascinating stuff isn't it?

Lloyd uses a tune from a publication by Joyce.


I hope at least one of these links works.

Joyce got it from the papers of a man called Forde. So it's in the pdf on the Forde collection, page 249, entry no 442.

Hope you enjoy looking at it!

Thanks again
