Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The folk revivalist Cecil Sharp recounts a curious anecdote in the appendix of his book The Sword Dances of Northern England. When attending a new year’s Morris Dance performance in a village not far from Lancaster, he was party to a highly idiosyncratic version of the traditional British Mummers play. Due to a dearth of talented local musicians, the musical interludes to the play were in fact mimed by non-musicians, along to a recording of the numbers played out over an archaic form of gramophone. Despite having no musical ability to speak of, so adept were these performers at synching with the recording, that the overall effect was “uncannily authentic, and deeply moving”.
