Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Irish (?) Song - Devil & Fiddler
Yes, all of the films in the Trilogy of Life have really great folk songs in them. Racconti di Canterbury uses many Irish ballads that are anachronistic but give the film a real British feel. Arabian Nights also has some really good ones but unfortunately I could find nothing at all about the ones he uses in that film on the internet. In the Prince Yunan story in particular, he uses some catchy Chinese or Nepalese chants. Some good stuff. In general, the music is as good as the varied, foreign sets in these films and as helpful
in setting up the scenes.
