I have used the first verse of the song in a children's book (yet unpublished) on the making of the Bayeux Tapestry. Two young girl cousins (actually my granddaughters!) are learning the textile trade in Canterbury ca 1080. The embrodery is being made in an aisle of the cathedral which is under construction. The girls sing and dance the song on their way to work at the start of Easter week. The book is called: Two Crowns of Daffodils: A CHild's Easter in Kent".
Best wishes, Jonathan Schwwrtz
