The English folk tune Kingsfold rendered very simply in synths. Incidentally, it is also the tune to the hymn I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, and almost identical to the Irish folk song, Star of County Down. The melody occurs elsewhere in European folk music, I believe.

Wow, that's creepy. I mean, in a good way. But creepy, still. The bell synth is unsettling enough on its own, and then there comes the warbly tape delay. Yikes! I dig.

Just beautiful. I love the combination of traditional song and bleeding-edge instrumentation. Your minimal arrangement is exactly perfect.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. Might cover a few more traditional songs.
