"I can live with that..."
If it's a pievce of music i can't be a folk song
I don't disparage anything - certainly not anybody's tastes
For me, the most exquiste pies of orchestral music ever written was Gouge Butterworth 'Banks of Green billow, based on the ballad, Bonnie Annie
Rejecting the words of a folk song for the tune is like throwing away the Bounty Bar and eating the wrapper
Not for my pallette
