The Song of Wandering Aengus has had an irresistible appeal to songwriters across the world.
It has been set to music by several artists – most famously perhaps by the American folk singer, Judy Collins, who recorded her version under the title, Golden Apples of the Sun.
A beautiful marriage of melody and words.
Mike Scott set several Yeats poems to music. This is The Song of Wandering Aengus from his album, An Audience with Mr Yeats.
