Spring Time of the Year

There are several good recordings of this piece on the web but this one by the Deller Consort is just lovely. The precise attention to those little accidentals and rhythm variations is just stunning.

Pretty good performance here although the recording is not the best. Just listen to that bass note at the end!

Here’s Steeleye Span’s recording of Lovely on the Water, the original name of the folk song. Nice to hear the other verses.

I like almost all of this very traditional folk performance but even really good voices find that leap a little tricky.
