These arrangements of three lilting folk songs ( Billy Boy, Blow the Wind Southerly, Keel Row) by Margot Wright are lovely to play and to listen to. They are straightforward technically, and accessible for beginner to intermediate standard players. These arrangements were made in memory of the famous singer Kathleen Ferrier, who tragically died at the height of her success, aged just 41, in 1953.
