From: SussexCarole

Please come and help us celebrate Maria's life and songs on

SUNDAY 15TH JULY 2.30 TO 10.30pm at
GLYNDE VILLAGE HALL/READING ROOM, GLYNDE Nr LEWES, EAST SUSSEX BN8 6JT.

Glynde is about 4 miles east of Lewes, just north of the A27.
The hall is between the main road and the Trevor Arms or about 4 minutes walk from the station, turn right, cross the bridge and pass the pub.

During the afternoon there will be an informal session of tunes, general songs and an opportunity to share any memories you have of Maria. Also in the afternoon a chance to take part in a circle dance to one of her songs.

This will be followed by tea, cakes and sandwiches. Tea and coffee provided. Please bring a plate of cakes or sandwiches to share.

No alcoholic drinks will be sold on the premises so feel free to bring your own.

In the evening there will be more tunes and we would like as many people to sing Maria's songs as possible. We may include the tunes to Maria's songs to be played for the sake of the tune as well as singing them.

Please contact me caetherton@aol.com or by Mudcat PM if you would like to sing one of Maria's songs or for more details

We hope this day will bring together everyone who knew Maria and will remind us of fond memories we've had in her company.

What a fabulous idea, and sorry it's not possible for me to make it down, but you can rest assured that I'll be putting one of her songs -or maybe two - into my set at the festival where I'm performing that day.
Hoping it all goes well Carole (did you get my email a few days ago by the way?).

Just a suggestion: would it be an idea to post a list of the songs already chosen, and who the singers are, to help people decide which ones to do? We could add it to the Facebook event as well.

Great idea Valmai

There's not many songs left now that haven't been allocated (of the ones Maria wrote and recorded). I'll list them here and on Facebook tomorrow.

Of course there's many gems that she wrote that never were recorded.

The songs of Maria's which are on her recordings and have not yet been requested by people to sing on the 15th July are

The Witch Next Door
Awakening
Ringing The Changes
Let Me Sleep
Spirit of The Wind
April Evening
Macsen's Dream

In an interview with EFDS in 1997 Maria admitted to having written 50 songs...there must be many out there unrecorded

Maria also recorded a few trad songs which she put her own tune/arrangement these are

Gypsey Davey
King Henry
Rolling of the Stones
Reynardine
A Sailor Life
Heffle Cuckoo Fair
Childe Rowland
Scarborough Fair
Robin Hood Pedlar
Bee Boys Song
Wandering Aengus

If you're coming and would like to sing one (or more) of these please get in touch.   

We're hoping that people will also sing songs of the type Maria enjoyed...those of nature/characters/events/humorous

Cheers    Carole

I've put my name down for The Healer and The Hat in the Road, but if anyone else is anxious to do them I'm happy to step back as Bryan and I are doing Maria's round Whitehawk as an instrumental anyway.

Let's make an effort to keep Maria's songs alive. She wanted them to be matured by the folk process; it's the least we can do.
