Subject: RE: Origins: John o' Dreams (Bill Caddick)
Yeah, Steve, that's my inclination, too. I'm always tempted to delve deeper into the folk origins of classical music - but I've never gotten very far. I was intrigued by the recent thread about Baba Yaga, but was unable to find any traditional source for Mussorgsky's tune about the witch in Pictures at an Exhibition.
