Subject: RE: Common poems set to music
I must say that Gordon Bok's singing of Kipling's "The Sea Wife" is beyond excellent. Phil Ochs Melody to "The Lads Who Serve The Guns"
is as perfect a mix as his melody to "The Highwayman." Sorry Harpmolly, but I found Loreen McKennits melody to The Highwayman to be ponderous.
But even at that, dull as it is, the story is so good as it is still listenable.
