Week 30: I live not where I love, My bonny boy

A slightly less Stakhanovite level of effort for week 30, with only two songs. Both love songs, both traditional (and still no deaths). Also two of the most beautiful songs I know; the Green album is good for those.

I live not where I love was learnt from a version sung at my local singaround, although it doesn’t sound much like it – not least because it’s accompanied (melodica, recorder and zither).

My bonny boy was learnt from Anne Briggs’s recording, and again doesn’t sound much like it – not only because it’s accompanied (melodica and flute).
