If you listen to BBC radio 4 at 5.30am (BST, 4.30am GMT) start-up, you can hear their theme tune, which weaves together a large number of old and traditional UK melodies in a quite amazing manner. Web radio can be useful!

Now, if you'd like some funny/bawdy ones, check out the ones "written" by P.D.Q. Bach (aka Peter Schickele). "Art of the Ground Round for 3 baritones & discontinuo, S. $1. 19/lb" can be found on the album "The Intimate PDQ Bach."

Well, without knowing they were actually related songs, I superimposed Rambler Gambler (the Joan Baez version as sung by me) onto Pretty Mary (the Peter, Paul and Mary version as sung by Reynaud).

I found out years later that both songs are variants of Wagoner's Lad, so of course they go together. Combining other pairs of variants might yield equally interesting results.

Good site, Masato! Arigato as usual!
Sol Weber has some good quodlibets in Rounds Galore and Rounds Galore and More (click).
My favorite, though, is
What a goodly thing (Jean Ritchie's Peace Round)
Shalom Chaverim
Wade in the water
Hey yanna ho yanna hey yan yan (NA Indian chant)

Ones I haven's seen mentioned before (checked the other threads)

Bill Bailey
Just Because
Meeting in the Air (Carter Family)
Washington & Lee Swing

we (Well Tempered String Band) use this as a demonstration at workshops-- the Carter Family never (well, hardly ever) used any chords but the I, IV and V even when the music clearly called for it-- thus Meeting in the Air used only those three chords even though other songs use the VI, II, V, I progression. . . and you can sing them together, as we dmonstrate.

Interested in Quodlibets ("partner songs", such as Blue Moon and Heart & Soul and Do You Wanna Dance, which can be sung simultaneously) with sufficiently distinct tunes to make an interesting 'tapestry'.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Margret
