Thread Name: Lyr Req: Quiet Joys of Brotherhood
Subject: Quiet Joys of Brotherhood
Richard Farina wrote words to the same tune as Lagan Love (which is, I think, really the tune called Belfast Maid, right?), and it's called "The Quiet Joys of Brotherhood." I have only heard it sung by Sandy Denny and am wondering a few things. First, can anyone post the lyrics (my Sandy Denny is trapped on vinyl and I haven't a turntable)? Second, is there a recording of Richard Farina singing this himself? Third, did he have anything to say about it and his inspiration to use the Irish tune? Thanks. Margaret
