The Doctor Origins: Dives and Lazarus (20) RE: Origins: Dives and Lazarus 12 Nov 20


Hi Joe
The tune for 'The Blacksmith' is in hymnbooks under the name of Monksgate, which as far as I remember was the village where it was collected. It was slightly adapted by RVW and set to the words 'Who would true valour see/He who would valiant be', also known as The Pilgrim Hymn.

Incidentally, RVW used nearly 50 English trad melodies in the English Hymnal, of which I have identified about 10, including The Bold Fisherman and The Ploughboy's Dream. If anyone can add any more to this list I'd be interested.
