Tune of the Day: Dearest Dickie

Traditional English dance tune

This morris dance tune comes from the village of Leafield, Oxfordshire, in England's Cotswolds. Leafield was called Fieldtown by the collector Cecil Sharpe, and the group of dances from that village are today known in morris circles as Fieldtown dances. The tune also goes by the name “The Marquis of Harlington”, which in the 18th century was the title of the eldest son of the Duke of Devonshire.
