Thread Name: Origins: Smile In Your Sleep / Hush, hush
Subject: RE: Tune Req: Hush, hush time to be sleeping
I bought the cd 'Bib & Tuck' by Maddy Prior & the Girls(2002, Parkrecords, PO Box 651, Oxford OX2 9RB) only last weekend, as it happens, and it has a version of Hush hush on it. Disconcertingly it states "words and music Prior/Kemp/Lathe". If they have just taken your song thinking it's a traditional, it would still have been nice to state it was a traditional. I feel a bit gutted by this, because I love the cd. It's very beautiful apart from a song called 'The dead are not dead', which perhaps understandibly gives me the creeps. Hush, hush happens to be my favourite tune on the cd, and one that pops up into my consciousness frequently. Which is why I started to read this thread in the first place. Thank you for such a lovely song. An
