about

I was asked by Revels North to create a brand new setting of William Blakes poem 'And Do Those Feet in Ancient Time' to perform at their annual Christmas Revels show. This song is better known as Jerusalem and has utterly beautiful imagery throughout. The melody I created is based off the Morris Dance tune, Blue Eyed Stranger which I learnt from Mary Neal's Esperance Morris Book.
