The World's Greatest Music
Ben Fogle's tour of hidden Britain took us to Wales, the land not just of song but of great music in all forms
Mendelssohn composed 'A Rivulet', one of his Songs Without Words, during a holiday in 1829 in the little Flintshire village of Rhydd-Y-Mwyn. He was a guest of a mining engineer John Taylor, one of his father's friends. It was a fruitful holiday because he also found time to compose his operetta ‘Son and Stranger’.
