Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Douglas Ctarke ' Brigg Fair ' is a Lincolnshire folk song that tells how ' It was the fifth of August, The weather fine and fair,
Unto Brigg Fair I did repair, For love I was inclined.'
For once the course of true love runs smoothly; the singer meet* his sweetheart, takes her ' lily-white hand ' (' and merrily was her heart '), and swears eternal fidelity. That is all.
About the quietly beautiful, lilting melody of the old song , the composer has woven a dreamy orchestral meditation that has long been recognised as one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century English music.
