Three carols from the Janet Blunt ms of Adderbury tunes, collected ca. 1916-17. She tended to ‘tidy’ the words and tunes. One of her main informants was William Walton, who also sang to Sharp. As well as many folk songs he also sang her part songs from his years as a chorister. He usually sang three parts to a carol with the exception of ‘Newton’s double’ which is for six parts, [tuning].
