ROSE [3], THE. English, Jig and Morris Dance Tune (6/8 time). C Major (Wilson): A Major (Bacon): G Major (Mallinson). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB (Wilson): AABBCBBCBB (Mallinson): AABBCC'BBCC'BB (Bacon). Collected from the village of Leafield, Oxfordshire, in England's Cotswolds. Leafield was called Fieldtown by the English collector Cecil Sharp [1] (1859-1924), and the group of dances from the village are known commonly among morris dance circles as Fieldtown dances. The music was largely collected from a fiddler of Sharpe's acquaintance from the village by the name of Frank Butler. It is an old jig melody however, and appeared London in the Thompson's Twenty Four Country Dances for the Year 1778 and their Compleat Collection of 200 Country Dances (1780), Thomas Skillern's Collection of 200 Country Dances, vol. 4 (1780), and dancing master Thomas Wilson's Companion to the Ball Room (1816).
