Description

An assortment of English country personalities inhabit this song cycle, which deals with the ideas of lost love and betrayal in love. The cycle begins with a ballad singer whom the speaker implores to song as a way of making him forget the pain of losing one whom he loves. Julie-Jane is a young woman whom the speaker fondly remembers after she has passed on following the company of a number of men out of wedlock. A fiddler plays at a country dance, watching as dancers couple throughout the night, and then for life. Carrey Clavel is another woman, one who scorns the company of the speaker, and finally Rose-Ann, who has led the speaker on without telling him she is promised to another.
