Where The Wild Thyme Blows

07/06/11 8:00AM

John Blackwood McEwen was a composer from the Scottish borderlands. He led the Royal Academy in London during the 1920s early 1930s, and left the world a musical legacy including his rich "Borderland Ballads" - richly orchestrated works, evocative of the rugged landscape of his homeland. This morning we'll hear "Where the Wild Thyme Blows".
