Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: The Rose of Allendale / Allandale
Subject: RE: The Rose of Allendale
In the Good Old days before Mike Harding , Folk on Two did an expose on Rose of Allandale . As I recall , they had sheet music from about 1840 by Jeffreys and Nelson , and had a Pianist and tenor perform the song , then played Martin Carthy singing it as HE got it from The Coppers (Bob and Ron) in 1960 .
Not trying to put Nic Jones down , but would Antie Beeb broadcast a total untruth ? Any one able to check with Mr Carthy and Mr Jones ?
What was stated was , that it was a popular parlour song in the 1840's and was part of the Copper family's repertoire , and one of the songs that Grandfather wrote out in his book in the mid 1920's .
