Product Description

There is still life in a tradition of folk music that is in constant danger of oblivion. These two marvellous melodies form the basis of a fantasia. The songs would appear to have little in common, yet both the miller and the minstrel are musicians, and both have a blend of the tragic and the stoical – the miller keeping himself to himself in spite of his outward jollity, and the minstrel boy going cheerfully off to war and probable death.
