An Acre of Land

Time travel's possible! For instant transportation into another age, press play:

"An Acre of Land" is one of the many English folk songs that Ralph Vaughan Williams put down in writing. Good man! This recording dates from 1928, I think. I wonder how different it sounded in 1904 when first sung to the composer by Frank Bailey?
