My Lord Mayor's Delight
Back to My Lord Mayor's Delight
MY LORD MAYOR'S DELIGHT. AKA and see "Lillibulero." This alternate title for the well-known "Lillibulero" can be traced to a reference in Edward Ward's The London Spy (1698-9) of a street scene in London, which reads:
...some were dancing to a bagpipe; others whistling to a Base Violin, two Fiddlers scraping Lilla burlero, My Lord Mayor's Delight, upon a couple of Crack'd Crowds.
The similarly titled "Lord Mayor's Delight" is a different tune.
