    Welcome traveller. It’s a beautiful Summer’s day, just right to sit here in this field of corn and listen to the voices of the past...

    These songs (apart from the Green Fields of France and Wild Mountain Thyme) are modern interpretations of classic folk songs. The source of these songs lay with the great folk song collectors such as Cecil Sharp, Francis James Child, and the Copper family. These are songs that were transmitted through word of mouth, songs of the lower classes, music with no known composer.

about

Patapan is based on a French Christmas carol which I’ve altered as a celebration of the Winter Solstice.

lyrics

Patapan
(Traditional)

William, bring your rounded drum;
And you long flute Robin come;
And be merry while you play,
Tu-re-lu-re-lu,
Pat-a-pat-a-pan,
Come be merry while you play,
Let us make our Solstice day!

When the men of olden days
To the Son of Suns gave praise,
On the flute and drum did play,
Tu-re-lu-re-lu,
Pat-a-pat-a-pan,
On the flute and drum did play,
So their hearts could be glad today!

Sun and Earth have now become
More in tune than flute and drum,
So be merry while you play,
Tu-re-lu-re-lu,
Pat-a-pat-a-pan,
So be merry while you play,
Sing and dance this Solstice day!
