poetry for the ear in the tradition of blind Homer 

The music you are now hearing is "Fantasia on a Fugue" [Musica Britannica 62] by William Byrd, a contemporary of Shakespeare.  The work was sequenced by internationally renowned Canadian harpsichordist John Sankey, to whom I owe a debt of gratitude for his kind permission to use all of his many recordings on Eaglesweb.com.

Eric Bogle [1944-  ]: The Green Fields of France [1:53]
Eric Bogle composed the song of which the words of the recitation above are the lyrics (one version).  Bogle is a Scotsman who relocated to Australia.  His life and music recordings may be found at: www.windbourne.com/ebogle/eric.html.  I strongly recommend the music of this very talented singer-songwriter.
