Thread Name: Robin Hood ballads
Subject: RE: Robin Hood ballads
John Kirkpatrick does an 8-minute 'Robin Hood Rescuing The Squires' on Various Artists 'Ballads' Fellside FECD110. This is based on a version sung to Vaughan Williams by Mrs Goodyear of Axford, Hampshire, in 1909 conflated with verses from versions in Child 140 and some remembered by Northhamptonshire poet, John Clare.

Tony Rose did a fine rendition of 'Robin Hood and the Bishop of Hereford' on his 'Young Hunting' LP Trailer LER 2013 - unfortunately one of those 'folk revival' albums in the clutches of the dreaded Bulmer and unlikely to see reissue. The music and words for Rose's version came from Chappell's 'Popular Music of Olden Time'.
