This Old Man

Traditional English Folk Song

Originally Performed by The King's Singers

The origins of this song are obscure. The earliest extant record is a version noted in Anne Gilchrist's Journal of the English Folk Dance and Song Society (1937), learnt from her Welsh nurse in the 1870s under the title "Jack Jintle".

King's Singers : Choral Library Vol 1

This collection brings together some of the more popular pieces sung by The King's Singers over the past years. With the possible exception of "This Old Man" and "Mariri's Wedding", all the pieces have a gentle and rather wistful quality that perhaps reflects more reserved side of the British character in both the arrangers and the singers.

Songlist: This Old Man, The Gift To Be Simple, Irish Lullaby, The Three Ravens, Time After Time, Mairi's Wedding, Lavender's Blue, The Long Day Closes, Phillis is My Only Joy, Charm Me Asleep
