Song to the Seals
composer
author of text

Introduction
English composer Sir Granville Bantock was attracted to exotic subjects with mystical overtones. The sheet music of this 1930 composition bears the following inscription: ‘The refrain of this song was actually used recently on an Hebridean island by a singer who thereby attracted a quantity of seals to gather round and listen intently to the singing’.

from notes by Robert White 1995
