Valley Of Silence

Again one of J.S. Skinner’s compositions.

"The Valley of Silence" is where Cu Chulain’s Mistress, Niamh, sent him when he was being pursued by all the witches of Ireland. I always thought this meant "The Silent Valley" in County Down. There is a Reservoir there now.

B natural

That should be a B natural, not a B #
