Shadowfall - On Board a ‘98’ 
(Traditional/Richards)

I recently came across this on the three CD collection Wake the Vaulted Echoes by my hero, the late Peter Bellamy. He apparently came across the lyrics in the library of Cecil Sharp House and wrote his own tune because the original, by Vaughan Williams, was so awful by his account. Taking inspiration from his vocal and concertina version I have written my own tune and added a chorus.
