King Herod and the Cock - an English folk carol from my home county.

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/ccc18_kingherodandthecock_am_128kb.mp3

This is an offering to the carol collection.

It is taken from the Cecil Sharp collection
https://archive.org/details/englishfolkcarol00shar
Time 1:34

The tune, such as it is, is my own improvisation on the one printed. If it is acceptable I may rerecord to try to get a more tuneful version.

Thank you, Alan! This is a fascinating folk carol that I haven't heard before! Your improvised variation on the folk tune sounds fine, and I've marked it PL OK! But if you should opt to tinker with your tune and rerecord, that's up to you.

Here's my contribution to the collection. Would someone be willing to PL it for me, please?

* Title of the carol - Constant Christmas
* Link to your recording, as shown on the Uploader - https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/ccc18_constantchristmas_mk_128kb.mp3
* Duration (runtime) - 03:22
* Link to the text source - https://archive.org/details/christmassongsea00broo/page/n5
* Link to the tune source - http://www.hymntime.com/tch/htm/s/k/y/skycansr.htm
* Author's name, birth and death dates - Phillips Brooks (1835-1893)
* Composer's name, birth and death dates - Timothy R. Matthews (1826–1910)
* Language in which the carol is written - English

Tricia - The text source is a scan of a book which included lyrics only, no music. I found the music from a different source, but that source was missing some of the verses. Since I wanted to sing all of Brook's original verses, I used the text source with the full lyrics, and that is also the one I entered into the metadata. But I've included the music source in this post for reference, just to show that the tune is also PD.

Thanks, Alan. While the first version was okay, I see now why you wanted to redo it. While your improvised melody seemed loose and tentative the first time, this version has the solid sureness of "Yes, this is the way the tune wants to go!" This one is better than okay -- it is PL OK! (And I'm still tickled by the thought of that cooked chicken standing up to crow on the plate!)

The Bitter Withy - an English Folk Carol from Gloucestershire (my home county)

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/ccc18_thebitterwithy_am_128kb.mp3

This is also from the Cecil Sharp Folk Carol collection. Again the tune is my own improvisation on the printed tune.

Time 3:08

This is a strange song for a xmas carol, the sentiments seem hardly Christian, more like folk superstition.

Hi
I have checked this recording against the text source and it is fully correct. I could not actually find the music source but the tune sounds fine to me so I think you can mark this PL OK.

This is indeed a rather strange carol! Folk songs often include things that seem a bit weird to us now - (like that cooked bird crowing in the last one!). But this one is a bit wilder than usual. I don't know about other folks, but I'm always fascinated by odd folk legends and songs.

Well, anyway -- this is PL OK! Thanks for bringing us some carols we haven't heard before!

Thank you, Ezwa! It's difficult for me to search for sources in languages other than English, so I am really grateful for help in that regard!
