Quotations about English Folk Dance Bands.      

Quotations about English folk dance bands and their instruments crop up throughout literature. Here are some quotations:-

There are in the music of the violin ... accents so closely akin to those ofcertain contralto voices that one has the illusion that a singer has taken her place amid the orchestra. One raises one’s eyes, and sees only the wooden case, delicate as a Chinese box, but at moments, one is still tricked by the Siren’s deceiving call; at times too, one thinks one is listening to a captive genie struggling in the darkness of the sapient, quivering and enchanted box, like a devil immersed in a stoup of holy water; sometimes, again, it is in the air, at large, like a pure and supernatural being that unfolds its invisible message as it goes by. Marcel Proust
