These arrangements of three lilting folk songs ( Billy Boy, Blow the Wind Southerly, The Keel Row) by Margot Wright are lovely to play and to listen to. They are straightforward technically, and so 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.

Two of the songs are on the Trinity exam board cello syllabus:  Blow the Wind Southerly on the Grade 4 and Keel Row on the Grade 6 lists.
