MATTY GROVES

SONGS FROM THE BALCONY


An exuberant romp through adultery, swordplay and death, this song exists in many textual variants and has several variant names. The song dates to at least 1613, and under the title Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard is one of the Child Ballads collected by 19th-century American scholar Francis James Child.
