We discuss our approaches to interpreting the Cruel Mother, a dark and somewhat problematic song with themes of infanticide and ghostly apparitions, as well as incredible submissions from the Old Tunes Fresh Takes community: listen to the full playlist of submissions here.
We also introduce the next episode's tune, the Bitter Withy - a 14th Century song from Hereford where we meet a young Jesus drowning a few local posh lads. If you want to get involved and have a go for next month's episode, you can find resources to get you started here. To feature, make sure you get it to us by 17:00 on Friday 15 May.
In the meantime, make sure you stay up to date and keep in touch by following us on Facebook, Twitter or SoundCloud.
