I like The Cutty Wren a lot [In reply to] Can't Post

lyrics

audio

You might be right about the melody for the Nowell Sing We Clear version of The King.

I've had the same problem with shape note singing - picking out the primary melody.

btw: I ran across a interview with Tony Barrand who said The King was his favorite carol ... or folk song, I forget which. :-)
