    1. Thanks, Leslie. Again, on the youtube itself there are “credits” – but in this case it’s based on an old English traditional tune, first a hornpipe (“Star of the County Down, in 3/4 originally), then as “Dives & Lazarus” (which Vaughan Williams elaborated on in Five Variants), and also in liturgical hymnals, as “Canticle of the Turning.” Same basic progression, though varied applications and approach.

      1. Yes. There’s a distinctive flair, like Old English. It might be interesting to explore those titles, in their various manifestations. Thanks again —
