Tune of the Day: The Month of May

Traditional English dance tune

This tune was collected in the Cotswold villages of Field Town and Brackley, England. Versions of the melody can also be found in the music manuscript copybook of Michael Turner (1796–1885), for fifty years a parish clerk, sexton and choir leader in Warnham, Sussex.
