Η ορχηστρική βερσιόν της παραδοσιακής μελωδίας είχε γραφτεί αρχικά από τον συνθέτη στο πλαίσιο της όπερας του Ralph Vaughan Williams “Sir John In Love”. Δεν άργησε βέβαια να ξεχωρίσει και να αυτονομηθεί. Την ακούμε από την Academy Of Saint Martin In The Fields υπό τον Neville Marriner.

The traditional melody’s orchestral version was originally composed as part of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ opera “Sir John In Love”. Of course, it didn’t take long for it to stand out and autonomize itself. We hear it from Academy Of Saint Martin In The Fields conducted by Neville Marriner.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
