X:1 T:Newcastle [1] M:4/4 L:1/4 Q:200 H:Simpson feels that the surviving tune is not the one which had some H:currency in Elizabethan days. He points out that wrenchings of accent H:are necessary to accomplish the fit of Playford's dance tune to a H:curious fragment of text found in the 18th century Percy folio MS, a H:source of dubious authenticity itself. H:Came you not from H:Newcastle? H:Came yee not there away? &c H:It is quite possible that H:this dance was inspired by William, Duke of Newcastle, a royalist who H:remained in London and bent his interests towards the theatre during H:the interregnum.
