Description

The songs on this album have been selected from the hundreds collected by Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould over a century ago in Devon and Cornwall and have been chosen for the way they enrich and inform our lives now. As collected the songs have a rough, magical beauty like the moorland landscapes from which they come. Now, like stones brought in from the weather to adorn a living room, they have been trimmed and polished for a new audience. The musical arrangements embrace harmony singing, fiddles, concertina, a touch of brass and other ideas borrowed from living traditions in England, designed to make these gems sparkle like the crystals in moorland granite.
