Thread Name: Origins: Lady Mary / Palace Grand / The Sad Song
Subject: RE: Lady Mary / Palace Grand / The Sad Song
So far, we have only assumptions made by revival performers about this song; not an atom of evidence for its existence before the early 20th century in America. It may well be older; though, from the language, probably not much. I hadn't realised that someone might confuse "Jacobean" with "Jacobite", of course; we can, after all, only try to answer the questions that are asked.
