As all good folk lovers will know, many of our traditional songs were collected by a gentleman called Cecil Sharp. To celebrate this wonderful achievement which helped to preserve a huge part of our musical heritage, the BBC folk show stage a Cecil Sharp folk collection.
Singers and musicians were invited to submit one of three of Mr Sharp’s earliest collected songs or tunes. Roots chose The Seeds of Love which was arranged for three part harmony by the choir’s musical director, Willow Songsmith.
Unfortunately, we were too late for inclusion on the BBC folk show website, but not Youtube which is the window of the world!
