Just wondering--------Is Martin Simpson slated to perform a piece called "The Bell" at the London Olympic Games and if so,does anyone have the lyrics?

I may be absolutely wrong about this but I have seen an on-line mention at a BBC web-site about a Martin Simpson penned piece called "The Bell" performed by Simpson and Tabor.There is a link at the BBC but apparently it's unavailable to hear by anyone outside the UK?

I'll put you out of your misery.

The song was written for "The Ballads Of The Games" - a programme on BBC Radio similar to the original radio ballads written and broadcast in the 1950s and 60s by Ewan Maccoll, Peggy Seeger and Charles Parker. This programme mixed active sound clips of people talking about the Olympics with songs written by Martin, Jez Lowe, Chris Wood and more.

The song is performed by June Tabor and Martin and has not been on a CD - it was recorded specially for the programme. It won't feature in any of the Olympic events and I don't think the programme will be archived for playing outside the UK.

It sounds ok. Not either June or Martin's best work, but certainly not a disappointment either.
