Seasons HJKnowles.jpg

I found this lovely and rather mysterious song in the sound library at Cecil Sharp House, London, where I helped for a year at the apparently endless work of cataloguing in 1967. All four seasons are included in Horace Knowles’  beautiful drawing, but English rural folksong lives in a perpetual Spring.
