Bold Nelson’s Praise

Cecil Sharp collected Bold Nelson’s Praise from Tom Gardiner (aged 70), at Blackwells, Warwickshire, on the 9th September 1909. He also collected the versions of the Morris tune Princess Royal, which follow the song, from Bampton & Sherborne.

Incidentally, as in the song, my paternal grandmother pronounced the name Trafalgar as ’Traffelgar’. Perhaps it was a London thing.
