Telen Rumengol [The Harp of Rumengol]
Rinder's Note: "Telen Rumengol" translates to "The Harp of Rumengol," and by extension the "Pardon des Chanteurs.." This sketch of a Summer Pardon is adapted from a recent book on the Country of the Pardons, by the distinguished Breton writer, M. Anatole Le Braz.
King Gralon escapes to forest for refuge; at the Druid healing stone, he has a vision of Virgin; when he dies, Virgin promises to create “a race of singers” called “the nightingales of the Virgin." Story includes some Celtic (Breton) songs.
