Programme Note
Charles Turner The Ballad of Barnaby (1969)
The story of Barnaby, the finest tumbler of his day, who lived a life of vice until the day he was faced with his conscience. Following this experience, he vows to atone for his less than honorable ways. His new faith leaves him in awe of the Blessed Virgin, whom he manages to charm with his expert tumbling, the only honorable thing he has learned to do. Demons from Hell attempt to steal his soul, but the Blessed Virgin and her angels drive them away, thus saving his soul.
