Maltworms
Last updated: 22.04.17
The lyrics to Maltworms by Peter Warlock were originally sung in "a right pithy, pleasant, and merry comedy" Gammer Gurton's Needle (1575) but song itself is of an earlier date. Here Warlock uses three verses of I Cannot Eat But Little Meat to his setting written in 1926.
