This is beautiful peice of music, and a great modern sounding arrangement with colourful chords. Reminiscent a bit of the Simon and Garfunkel arrangement, but not the same. I will learn this.
I live in Scarborough
Scarborough had a large and famous fair, given a royal Charter by King Henry 3rd. Its boom years were about 1250 to 1400. It lasted from mid August to the end of September. It was mostly for trading, but there were plenty of fun and games to be had. Visitors came to it from as far apart as Scandanavia and the Mediterranean. I picture a colder and more Northern version of the Marrakech souk.
The fair declined gradually, eventually finishing in about 1800. There is still an event of the same name every year, but its a almost unrecognisable echo of a the past.
