The turtle dove

First line:
Fare you well, my dear, I must be gone
Traditional folksong
author of text

In May of 1907 Vaughan Williams recorded David Penfold, landlord of The Plough Inn at Rusper, Sussex, singing The turtle dove. The tune of heart-melting loveliness amply matches the lover’s passionate declarations of constancy.
