A short, but attractive little tune.

Great polka!

Re: The Shepherd’s Lamb

Who wrote the tune? I listened to it digitally from Cherish the Ladies so don’t have the notes.

Re: The Shepherd’s Lamb

Thanks! I had thought that perhaps it might have been written by member/s of Cherish the Ladies because they seem to be the only ones who recorded it.

Re: The Shepherd’s Lamb

CD sleeve notes say they learned this polka from Maureen Glynn Connolly.
