Subject: RE: LYR. ADD: GEORGE FOX
Well, this one I didn't know, Jester. Here and there, I've seen lyrics for various Sydney Carter songs, but I've rarely heard them sung. I think that for "George Fox," the tune I've heard was "Simple Gifts," but I only heard a smidgeon of the song on the "Rise Up Singing" teaching tapes. When I was in college in the 1960's, we sang "Lord of the Dance" at folk masses until well past the time that I got sick of it. I didn't hear another Sydney Carter song until I heard Bok-Muir-Trickett do a wonderful rendition of "Julian of Norwich." I think I'd like to hear more of Sydney Carter.
