The Mummers' Dance
By Loreena McKennitt
YouTube Comments: "The video is a re-enactment of a vanishing custom held each St Stephens day in rural parts of Ireland where local musicians visited each family in the area and spent an hour or two playing music before moving to the next family.That's how country folk in Ireland entertained themselves in those bye gone days before the advent of television etc etc."
Nature with Lyrics (Same song, different YouTube video.)
"When in the springtime of the year
When the trees are crowned with leaves
When the ash and oak, and the birch and yew
Are dressed in ribbons fair..."
