The Wandersong Jewel Songs
You will have noticed that there are a lot of songs in the books. As many of you also know, it is easier to write a song if you also have a tune for it. I’ve been writing Westrian music since I started writing about Westria in 1971. The first song I wrote was “Far Away” which originally was sung by Silverhair when he turned up unexpectedly and cast a real damper on Isabella’s wedding at the very beginning of the original “ur-Westria” book (which you will never see, as I made every possible first-novelist’s mistake in it, but which supplied a great deal of useful raw material). After I got my first harp, Peregrine, in 1978 (a wire-strung “Hobbit” style harp by Jay Witcher, made from California Black Walnut wood, with 17 strings), I began composing songs that could be played on it (although I will never play as well as Silverhair).
