Notes from the arranger
This BBC series Cranford is set in the 18th century quaint village of Cranford, in the county of Cheshire in North West England. The traditional way of life moves towards uncomfortable changes as signs of progress intrude on daily life. Cranford is delightfully filled with classic town characters with the gossip, the snob, the meek and humble, rigid spinsters, the separation of classes, the soft and accommodating, the would-be creative, the learned and unlearned, the desperate looking for husbands, the trickster and handsome healer. The warmth and real concerns of the authentic setting in Cranford are enduring and speak of timeless themes for our modern day where most troubles can be resolved over a nice hot cup of tea.
The songs are arranged in the key of G with 2 accidentals (lever flips). The lowest note is G (1 1/2 octave below middle C).
