I agree with Slim but not with nameless. Catherine McKinnon did the first and defining recording of this song on the Arc label. She sings with fantastic upper range and without her this song would have remained buried in Creighton's collections. Clary Croft has dedicated a good part of his life to bringing Creighton's work into the public eye and he has recorded a lot of her songs. No insult to Ian & Sylvia, as I love their stuff but they recorded this as a cover of McKinnon.
