The Witch of the Westmerlands

£30.00

Arranged for the Leyland Band’s 2010 Brass in Concert programme. This is a sumptuous, lyrical setting of Scottish folk singer-songwriter Archie Fischer’s originally up-beat song, with solos for baritone and cornet. The words tell the story of an ancient knight wounded in battle and dying on the battlefield who is healed by a mysterious old lady appearing from across the moors and swiftly vanishing again.
  The original version was sung by, amongst others, Barbara Dickson who has said she is a big fan of Philip’s sensitive arrangement.
