Words & music by David Walton & Marieluise Niehus 2013
A classroom full of eight year old children on either side of the Atlantic Ocean. At the front a young teacher with a guitar .. I see the picture so clearly ..
This is a song with a bibliography:- Mayflower by Vernon Heaton and Mayflower Remembered by Crispin Gill. I wanted to steep myself in their circumstances and I wanted every single word to be historically accurate. Misleading eight year olds is not what I do ..
My thanks to the people at freesound.org who contribute their time and energy towards creating a valuable audio resource. The sound that opens and closes this recording is from the inside of a tall ship crossing the Atlantic :)
