Misc. Comments

A large number of these tunes were actually written by Hudson himself.
"Many of the tunes he published were his own compositions but were presented as traditional melodies and given a false provenance to back them up. Hudson felt vindicated when he heard that Bunting had expressed some jealousy towards Hudson's published airs. Henry Hudson never publicly admitted to his deceit and several of his compositions appear as traditional melodies in the manuscripts and publications of other collectors."
