Tune of the Day: Sellenger's Round
This old folk dance melody is thought to have originated in Ireland (where it is sometimes called “The Beginning of the World”), and became very popular in England in the 16th century. A “round” is a dance where the dancers form a circle. The tune continues to be used to this day by dance troops who perform English folk dances, including Morris and Maypole style dancing.
Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
