Orange in Bloom (The Sherborne Waltz)

[trad. arr. Carthy / Eliza Carthy]

This instrumental was played by Waterson:Carthy on their eponymous debut album Waterson:Carthy. Martin Carthy commented in the sleeve notes:

I believe that Rod Stradling is responsible for converting the Morris tune Orange in Bloom from its 6/8 time to this beguiling waltz. It’s one of those tunes that can be played for hours (and often is).
