Cambridgeshire

Cecil Sharp visited Cambridgeshire for the first time to collect songs in September 1911. He found 11 singers in the Ely area including the workhouse. Of course he had attended Clare College Cambridge as a young man and apparently enjoyed visiting Ely cathedral with his father many years previously.
