Thread Name: Is there a future for traditional music
Subject: RE: Is there a future for traditional music
This reflects, I think, and correct me if I'm wrong, the fears of a prevoius cotributor who wanted to know whether if we had never experienced the galley kithen (euphamism) we could never sing about it. Therein lies a problem that maybe only ever the author of the song could really sing as he/she intended the lyrics to be interpreted and we should and do all miss the passing of authors but in an ever changing world it can't be said with certainty that some singer would not have the insight to put thenselves into the shoes of the originator and get it right or even do it better. The particular circumstances of the cause of human emotion may be lost but I suspect the same old feelings are still being aroused and as well expressed.
