5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional Wessex Folk 31 July 2010
By Marcia TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
An excellent Digital recording made in 1986 by Saydisc records, and now nearly 25 years later it still sounds great. It is in fact an important recording that recreates the style and sound of popular songs and dances Familiar to people such as Thomas Hardy and his family in the 19th Century. Thomas Hardy, the writer, came from a musical family. They could read music and they collected manuscripts of music and Hardy`s father kept a book in which he noted down traditional tunes he liked. This recording has many tunes that Hardy talks about in his many books. And each tune is interpreted by the Mellstock Band on authentic instruments in a faithful, vibrant and exciting way. These tunes have been played in rural English parish churches by wind and string players during the 18th and early 19th century. This would usually be in the west gallery of the church and these musicians would be joined by a choir.
There are some catchy, melodic, rhythmic and enjoyable dance tunes. And there are also some anthemic joyous songs along with beautiful harmonies. The performance from the band is very good and the whole recording has a unique atmosphere.
I highly recommend this recording. Also of interest are similar Mellstock Band recordings that I also recommend if you like this one. Try Dance at the Phoenix Songs of Thomas Hardy's Wessex Thomas Hardy Readings: Readings/Poetry & Music O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! 10 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Order placed 3rd DEC with Amazon.uk; order received 10th DEC. In a trans-Atlantic shipment, that's very fast timing. These English folk songs from "Hardy's Wessex" are a far cry more optimistic than Thomas Hardy ever was! Such lovely singing, with a tenderness and joyousness that go very well with a seasonal tot and neighbors popping in.
