"Jim, i was only stating a fact luke kelly left early, put whatever interpretation you like on that,"
And I was only stating that he was an early member - you suggested I was being misleading
Put whatever interpretation you like on that Dick
It is a moot point whether or not Taylor ornamented - other's claimed that he had natural vibrato
Joseph Taylor sang the the traditional version of Rufford Park Poachers, so the doubt about his using decoration still applies Be
side the point anyway - the Lincolnshire singers were recorded in 1908 and ornamentation has hardly appeared since
There was a possibility that Ned Adams was using decoration on the end of the first line of Bold Princess Royal but it is hardly discernable
Harry Cox talked about 'putting in the twiddly bits', but he never managed to do so.
I did say "seldom" - I never suggested it never put in an appearance - I certainly never intended to make a definitieve point about it.
Our singers considered themselves storytellers - their texts were secondary to the tunes - that was my point
