Tune 103 - Barwick Green

Barwick Green is the theme music to the long-running BBC Radio 4 rural soap opera The Archers. It is a maypole dance from the suite My Native Heath, written in 1924 by the Yorkshire composer Arthur Wood, and named after Barwick-in-Elmet. It is also a tune I used for a morris dance called Grundy's Delight.
