The Installation

[trad. arr. Brinsford / Carthy / Evans / Kirkpatrick / Williams]

Brass Monkey played the tune The Installation n 2004 on their fifth album Flame of Fire. John Kirkpatrick commented in the record’s sleeve notes:

The Installation was spotted by Tom Cook in an unidentified collection of 200 Country Dances from circa 1772, and included in his selection Again Let’s Be Merry, published by the EFDSS in 1979. The same original book als had the tune barred half a bar earlier under the name St George’s Fields.
