Being a compendium of venerable Ballads. Touching on subjects, both curious and supernatural, involving those beings of a mysterious and secretive nature, known variously as: fearies, ffayres, farisees, gude whyctis, fairies, elves, gobelyns, etc. including their Queen, Nobles, and Knights. Those humans who have been taken away by them and the dead that reside with them. As well as appearances of those maleficent women known as witches. This is England and its United Kingdoms' music, interpreted by drcarlsonalbion, under the direction of Coleman Grey. The ballads are as follows: Reynard the Fox, about a shape shifting ffayre fox that preys on beautiful ladies. She Moved Thro' the Faire, about a dead bride translated into fearrie, or a ffayre bride, or the apparition of a dead lover. Allison Gross, the story of a Knight turned into a Worm by a Witch, who is saved from this fate by the Queen of the Fairies. Rose in the Heather, a song about a fearrie Lover, concealed on the moor. Tamlane, being the tale of a Knight, taken away by the Fearrie Queen, who is saved by true love. King Orfeo, the oldest of the ballads here presented, about a King trying to rescue his Queen from Fairyland, and the cruel nature of its Ruler and inhabitants. The Elfin Knight, another ballad of a similarly hoary age as the previous one. This recounts the attempts of a fair lady to resist the advances of a cruel Elf.
