GUEST,John Bailey Common poems set to music (136* d) RE: Poems set to music 18 Nov 11

Phil Ochs also adapted Edgar Alan Poe's 'The Bells' which I used to sing in the 60s. By a strange coincidence I remembered this just last week and it reminded me of The Highwayman and that it was about time I learned it, as this Alfred Noyes poem has always been a favourite of my wife's since she first discovered it at the tender age of 13 and how uncomfortable it made her feel with its imagery - how times have changed - gone is the age of innocence.
