Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Anathea
Thanks for the info.

There's a YouTube clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJvpRn5K23w) described as "A very young Judy Collins appearance on TV show Hootenanny 1963, singing Anathea". Introducing the song, the MC says: "This is an international collaboration. American composer, Judy's friend, by the name of Lydia Wood. She first heard these words as verses written by a poet in Paris." He doesn't name the poet, and for that matter doesn't say the poet was French. (She heard these words in Paris? They were written in Paris?)
