Blow Away The Morning Dew

We sang Blow Away The Morning Dew at secondary school in the late fifties. Unlike the present version it was severely edited and as a 12 or 13 year old I thought the whole thing was weak and inconsequential, though I liked the tune. So did Cecil Sharp and Ralph Vaughan Williams who each collected versions. Vaughan Williams liked it so much he included it in more than one of his orchestral works. This is an unedited version, but innocuous as you’ll hear.
