Real old English tune, nice version though there are many, and lots sung without any instrument At all which is the best way to hear these.

The story behind the tune is that  she summoned her sons back from beyond death, for one night only, the mother who did the summomning being a witch. Hope you find it in teresting. Most old English tunes are steeped in folk lore.
