Early English Ballads from the Percy and Child Collections (Ballads Reliques)

Hermes Nye FW02305 / FA 2305

Hermes Nye's "sneaking fondness for the English things from Percy and Child" takes center stage on this collection of ballads. The singer's commentaries enliven the notes: for example, Nye writes, "Sir Walter Scott collected ["Binnorie"], and probably had enough integrity not to add to it, although we can never be sure about those old boys."
