VV.AA. ::: Sicily in music and song

Here is another of the James McNeish field recordings full of good music and atmosphere. 
I think that some tracks on this record are very precious in deed. I like the big 
variation covering many different styles and traditions, only thing that is sad is 
that so many tracks are so short. That does not make the record less important it 
only makes you want to hear more. I think the Easter wailing track, the Pastorale 
and the Prayer song are wonderful glimpses allowing a real time travel. 
The Tarantellina with the jews harp and the Nennia is also very good listening.
Hope you enjoy this one! I will post another one of his recordings with music from 
Greece, but a little later. Too much other music waiting in line... We will see what 
comes first, and maybe someone else has some more of the McNeish recordings they could 
pass along to me so I could put them together with the others...
