Tune of the Day: The World Turned Upside Down

 Traditional English ballad

This English ballad originated in the middle of the 1640s as a protest against the policies of Parliament relating to the celebration of Christmas. The tune is however older, and shared with another ballad, “When the King Enjoys His Own Again”, which was written at around the same time and was perhaps the most popular song in mid-17th-century England. The 18th-century critic Joseph Ritson called it “the most famous and popular air ever heard in this country”.

According to tradition, when Lord Cornwallis surrendered at the Siege of Yorktown (1781) the British band played this tune.

Thanks to Steve for suggesting this song!
