I don't know The Grey Cock.

F Lydian F G A B C D E F

This singer sings a flat third for 'my dear love' at about 50 in. So that bit sounds minor.

This also ends with a flat 3rd, major 2nd 1. That sound minor.

Haven't looked at the rest of it. For Lydian in with this 'tonal centre' wouldn't we need E F# G# A# B C# D#?

Too late for more thought on the subject. Too many ledger lines for comfort.

Brian: 05.23 Yes.
