The Fit’s Come On Me Now

“Of course I realise you have to be there, Ken, but the wedding is really the bride’s day.” So said my mother-in-law to be. The song was collected by Cecil Sharp from William Porter, Ely, Cambridgeshire, 20 October 1911.

The paintingThe Wedding Morning’ is by John Henry Frederick. (The pun of the song title and the bride’s dress-fitting was accidental!) ‘Signing The Register’ is by Edmund Blair Leighton.
