I came to this beautiful Peter Warlock
song simetime in 2003 through the good offices of Dr Oliver Rosteck
who accompanied me on piano. Peter Warlock derived this work on a piece by the 17th century John Chalk and dedicated it to a certain Dewey Gibson. With its "High trolollie lollie loes" I suppose it could not really be considered a folk song - but what the heck - we sang it anyway!
