Tune of the Day: Joan to the Maypole
Traditional English air
This Traditional English air dates back to at least the beginning of the 17th century. The tune appears in various collections under a number of different titles, including “May-day Country Mirth; or, The Young Lads and Lasses' Innocent Recreation” and “Rural Recreation; or, The Young Men and Maids' Merriment at their Dancing around a Country May-pole”.
