Maire, Lei Campagno

Album: not on an album (1550)
  • This traditional song dates from around the 16th century, and the Occitan language, which is now endangered. Broadly speaking it is about bells ringing on a mid-winter's night keeping the narrator awake. It has been recorded in recent years by the Terra Nova Consort, but its main claim to fame is that it was adapted by Blackmore's Night as "Dandelion Wine." >>
