This week's videos are an old Danish couple dance tune based on an earlier Dutch tune:

Welcome to the East India: https://youtu.be/cMyNbj-BqBE

And a medley of a Robert Burns song based on a much older Scottish tune and an English country dance based on the same tune:

This week's videos are a very widespread old time tune with lots of versions, and a Dutch / Flemish Christmas song welcoming the arrival of St. Nikolaas:

This week's videos are two Christmas tunes which also have other associations:

Santa Lucia is a very well known Neopolitan boatman's song which was first translated and published in Italian in 1849.
Saint Lucy's Day falls on December 13 and is celebrated widely in Scandinavia as a holiday of light and the beginning of the Jul (Yuletide) season. Girls and young women adorn themselves in white and wear a crown of lit candles in a musical procession.
The holiday also celebrated in Italy, Croatia and Hungary with the planting of wheat which will sprout and represent new life at Christmas time.

The Carnal and the Crane is one of several Christmas ballads which appear in F. J. Child's "The English and Scottish Popular Ballads" and are very old. The other well known Christmas ballads in Child which are still sung today include The Cherry Tree Carol and Dives and Lazarus. Herod and
the Cock, The Miraculous Harvest and King Pharim are carols which are very closely related to (actually shortened versions of) The Carnal and the Crane. Surprising omissions include The Holy Well and Down in Yon Forest (the Corpus Christie Carol).
