Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Fisherman's Night Song: 'In the calm hour
I was a member of a choir (King John's School, Thundersley, Essex, UK) and we sang this haunting song for a choir competition, circa 1959. I have never forgotten this song, and I also sang this song to my children when they were babies as a lullaby. I couldn't quite remember all the words and had to 'improvise' a little when I sang it to them. It brings back very happy memories and the song always did invoke beautiful and comforting images in my mind.
