Sounding Post

I've just been listening to the most wonderful radio programme, Sounding Post, tracing the relationship between wood and musical instruments - a theme close to my heart, I'm sure you'll agree! It was broadcast last friday so should be available to listen again for a week.

I was particularly struck by the woodsman talking about how his grandfather would bless an old tree before felling it:

Hail to thee old tree
Hail to thee old tree
May all your sons and daughters
Grow as strong and true as thee.
