Baildon : Primrose opening graced the bank, The : Choir offer
Composer: Joseph Baildon (c.1727 - 1774)
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer
One of Baildon's works in which he maintains his precedency in setting semi-disguised pornography. Many composers would use a May day setting to introduce a maypole: Baildon includes an imposing erection of an entirely different nature. Phill (despite appearances) is a young maiden, whereas Frank is clearly a fine, upstanding swain.
Choir offer: 2.00 euro for 9 copies
