Product Details


Folk Songs is a collection of nine folk songs, each in its original language. Bernard Rands describes the work as ‘semi-autobiographical’ in that each song originates from a country he has lived or spent sufficient time in for the area to influence his imagination. The songs are from Bavaria, England, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, U.S.A. and Wales.
