Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Burning Babe (Robert Southwell, S.J.)
Subject: RE: Burning Babe
Wolfgang, you are WONDERFUL - it IS those words. At least, it is certainly largely those - it may be exactly those words - since those stunning memorable phrases leap out at me again. Since this was a poem then the tune I heard must have been fitted after the event. It was credited to me as trad.. It is great to know something of the background - it makes the whole thing make much more sense. Thanks again.
