Mr Herbert’s version of the Gloucestershire wassail is complete, and he had learnt it 40 years previously from singers in the village. In the 1970s, Gwilym Davies interviewed two former wassailers from Avening, namely Frank Fletcher and Mr May, both of whom sang snatches of the tune.
Previous to that, Richard Chidlaw had researched the song and collected another Avening wassail tune from the wife of Billy Cox.
