London Bridge Is Falling Down – How to Play on Glockenspiel / Xylophone

London Bridge Is Falling Down” is a traditional nursery rhyme whose earliest known records are from the 17th century. The song recounts the attempts to repair the famous London Bridge.

The melody probably comes from a medieval theme, but its modern version formed in the late 19th century. Matilda of Scotland, Henry I’s consort, and Eleanor of Provence, consort of Henry III,  had the responsibility of building or repairing works on early 11th and 13th century respectively and are two of the candidates for the “fair lady” of the chorus.
