Subject: RE: Review: Archie Fisher 'Windward Away'
Kath- Wonderful to see your post here! I'd love to do a choral arrangement and I'd love to sing it with you, preferably in person!
Stay in touch, eh?

When I hear or sing the Graham Miles piece, I don't find it depressing. The "Loneliness" refrain carries the alone yet not hopeless sense for me; kind of a shepherd's blues feel.

"Woke up this morning,
the sheep got lost today.
My lady Loneliness
Has carried me away.
I've got the shepherd blues...
Baa-aaa-aaad blues!"

I'm learning "Windward Away" too. I waited a long time to sing that one. Also "Every Man's Heart".
