Says " Come with me, my lovely one. And we'll be wed, my own sweet lover. And let them talk when we are gone. Ten thousand miles it is too far For to leave me here for a-whiles, If I goes away I'll surely come again To all my friends what's near, my dear, To all my friends what's near.
I s'pose the sea should never run dry, Nor the rocks melt with the sun, And then you and I shall never part Till all our days are done, my dear, Till all our days are done. The tune with the first ending is in the Aeohan mode : with the alternative ending it is in the Dorian. Glover sang sometimes one ending, sometimes the other, and had no especial predilection for either.
The words are very corrupt, but are evidently one of the many folk-songs from which Burns derived his " Red, red, rose. K Lento. Nott, who is an old man, said of this song: " It is very difficult to sing, for you must show the two voices. At first we thought that the two changes of key in the middle of the song were un- intentional, and I accordingly noted that passage, as it was undoubtedly sung on its repetition at the end of the verse.
But on the last occasion we went to the piano in 58 the next room while Mr. Nott sang the song twice over, and we found that he sang it as here printed and that he kept his pitch with perfect accuracy. I do not think there are many singers who could do the same. Compare " Quoth John to Joan, wilt thou have me?
With my love swiffling round me, I took her to be a swan, So I shoot my dear darling with a ratteling gun. Baring-Gould has published a harmonised version of this ballad in sheet form, called " The Setting of the Sun " Weekes and Co. I noted the second version — which is but a fragment — from Mr. Clarence Rook, who heard it sung twenty years ago by a very old man at a Harvest Supper at Homestall, Doddington, near Faversham, Kent.
This shows that the ballad is sung in the extreme East of England as well as in the West. The supernatural element enters so rarely into the English Ballad that one is in- clined to see in its occurrence an indication of Celtic origin. In the present case this suspicion is perhaps strengthened by the presence of certain Irish characteristics in the tune.
The incidents related in the song are a strange admixture of fancy with matter of fact. Some members of the Society having expressed a wish for a list of those books most often quoted on the subject of traditional music, Mr. Frank Kidson has kindly com- piled the following short list, for ordinary working purposes.

It has been proposed that a very full bibliography of the subject should be undertaken. It is only fitting that a tribute should be paid to the memory of the late Mrs. Kate Lee, the virtual founder of the Folk-Song Society, whose death took place on July 25th, , at Stubbings Vicarage near Maidenhead, after a long and exceedingly painful illness.
She was the daughter of the late H. Lucius Spooner and niece of Mrs. Tait, wife of the Archbishop of Canterbury. While still in her teens, she gained a vocal prize at the Royal Academy of Music : but it was not till after mar- riage with Mr. Arthur Morier Lee, at the age of seventeen, and a subsequent course of musical training at the Royal College of Music, that she took up the profession of a singer, her mezzo-soprano voice being of great beauty, and her style of interpreta- tion such as to bring home to her hearers the full meaning of what she sang.
It was this quality, as well as her characteristic energy and earnestness, that made her so ardent in the search for folk-music, and that enabled her to win the confidence of the rustic singers among whom she collected so many songs. Subsequently she sang occasionally in opera, undertaking small parts at Covent Garden during the German and Italian season.
Shortly after the publication of " English County Songs," many of which she sang with inimitable gusto and humour, she formed the idea of establishing a society to undertake the work of collecting songs from different parts of England and the world in general. The scheme took shape in , and to her untiring energy its success was greatly due. Her lectures on folk-song, delivered in many parts of the country, were of the greatest service in inciting other people to collect as oppor- tunity arose, and her sympathy and good humour carried her through many diffi- culties, such as collectors of folk-songs know so well.
Nothing speaks more eloquently of her personal ardour in the work, than the fact that during her illness the society's activities were in abeyance. In this last period of her life she made some successful experiments as a writer of graceful songs. MARCH, President : The Right Hon. Doc, F. Principal of the Royal Academy of Mnsic. Sir C. Doc, D.
