The work is performed in the spirit of the time with some changes made for the modern ear.

Chris Latham, producer of this recording, notes 'This is a very attractive and catchy song. It is quite sweet and very singable. It has a resemblance to folk music and the description of campfire ditty on the cover of the sheet music says it all.'
