The Prince and the Mermaid
William Grant Still wrote this charming four movement string quartet to accompany the
story of Wanda, a beguiling young mermaid who wants simply to be with the Prince that she loves. Wanda asks her father,
the Sea King to transform her fishy tail into human legs so that she may pursue her Prince at the wondrous castle ball.
The story is beautifully narrated by Alix McCeachern Jones.
