I will thank the composer of this song until the day I die – and then I will thank him again – for this most beautifully pure arrangement of recorders and flutes. The song is featured in a Czechoslovakian fairy tale film from the early 1970s.

Warlus – “Songs” (1975). A treasure from the little-known French musician, Richard Maubert.
