OK, I'm back home and had a chance to see how Mally arranged this in his book. It is in Em, and for the 6th bar of the A part he offers both the "original" pitches plus an alternate an octave higher, with a note "The lower notes are those of the tune proper. If your instrument is without the low B and G, play the higher notes." It looks like the B part sits nicely in the D/G range without modification.

I like this Bampton version a lot; it's a bit more melancholy than the similar Adderbury version.

Thanks, that doesn’t sound bad on my abc player: I’ll try it for real at a time that won’t disturb the family/neighbours!

Me too, just wish I could play it! (But give me a couple of weeks...)

Yes Baz.... But *which* Bampton side?

Q

That's the real question ... there are 3 traditional morris teams in Bampton!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAI0ut--gW4 is one

But I prefer Matt Green's authentic Bampton one ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vb5c2sutirM
