Introduction
The importance of Haydn Wood’s contributions to the ballad repertoire is demonstrated by this further tender example. The poet this time is ‘Royden Barrie’, a pseudonym that hid the identity of Rodney Bennett, a writer of educational textbooks who was also the father of composer Richard Rodney Bennett.
