All tunes are Traditional arr. Ducklington Morris, except where noted otherwise. Note that these represent the current (as of mid-2006) forms of the tunes as they are usually played, and may not be the same note-for-note as recorded versions. The versions recorded by the likes of Cecil Sharp and Clive Carey are readily available elsewhere in resources such as Lionel Bacon's Handbook Of Morris Dances, and we saw no need to reproduce them here.

In order to view the pdf files, you may need a copy of Adobe Reader. The ABC notation can be read directly in a text viewer/editor such as Windows Notepad, although there are a number of programs that can play it back or display it in traditional musical notation. The MIDI files can be played back in any of a number of Media Players; Winamp is a popular choice. The Lilypond source files can be processed with the excellent GNU Lilypond, to produce written music in DVI, Postscript and PDF formats, and MIDI files. All the MIDI and PDF files on this page were created using Lilypond version 2.2.0.
