Bringing in the Green
I came across “Bringing in the Green” as a counter-melody to “Bodmin Riding March” among a heap of papers with various tunes on them. I have since lost the sheets which included the composer’s name. Can anyone, please, shed light on who wrote the tune or have any more info on it?
The ABC below gives an AABB structure but the original was simply AB.
