Through bushes and through briars

author of text

Folksongs from the Eastern Counties, edited by Sharp, were collected and arranged by Vaughan Williams between 1903 and 1906, and included Through Bushes and through Briars which, as part of over 800 folk melodies collected, was taken down from the singing of Charles Pottipher in the Essex village of Ingrave near Brentwood on 4 December 1904.
