Song to the Seals
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
