This is my own recording of the classic english folk song Brigg Fair, recorded from the singing of Joseph Taylor of Brigg, Lincolnshire by Percy Grainger in 1906, and the basis for Delius' orchestral piece of the same name.Joseph Taylor sang this unaccompanied - he had a very fine tenor voice,even though he was about 70 years old at the time.The recording was onto wax cylinder.I'm playing guitar here,as well as singing, and both were recorded together,live.
