Does anyone know a song called The Kestrel? (I think!) The chorus starts with:

Hovering high, high, high, Hovering high in the sky

It's got some super words and a lovely melody, and I'd like to learn it. i don't think it's in the database. Help!

Do you have any more info? I found this:

"Swift on the wing, powerful flight,
I soar, my tail spread wide
I fly for freedom, I fly for life,
On feathered wings I glide.

I am Kestrel, the flyer, the soarer,
I am a Falcon, I am a Hawk."
(from "Kestrel", by Erin Mazur

Played by a "celtic group influenced by Clannad"....I didn't get the name, but if that is it I can find it again. Nothing at all on "hovering high".

I can only finish the chorus which goes

Hovering high, high, high, Hovering high in the sky
On a wingbeat you can't see, on a quest to live or die
A kestrel hovers in the sky

Alas I don't know the verses but have heard it sung by one Bob Hamblin at the "Dog Days Festival" with a frequency which suggests ownership.

the-admiral may be able to help if he sees this?

Thanks 'Wandering Minstrel' - that's definitely the one. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Bob Hambleton (sic) is indeed the author. You can contact him at: herga@kestrel-folk.demon.co.uk (Strictly his Herga FC address, but it will work.

Thanks for the comments re "The Kestrel," which as GUEST,MCP rightly says, is one of mine, (thanks Mick). The words quoted by Sorcha are not mine, however; they obviously come from another, but similar, song. I'll be happy to supply the lyrics - the email address already given will reach me.

All the best and trhanks again for the comments.

I Am Kestrel, I Am A Hawk

Swift on the wing, powerful flight,
I soar, my tail spread wide
I fly for freedom, I fly for life,
On feathered wings I glide.

I am Kestrel, the flyer, the soarer,
I am a Falcon, I am a Hawk.

Death by air, I hunt the land,
Nothing but fresh killed flesh I eat,
I am a taker of life, please understand,
I kill by nature, not by will.

I am Kestrel, The hunter, the theif,
I am a Falcon, I am a Hawk.

Prettiest of the Falcon blood,
I have not a blue birds song and beauty,
Nor a swan's long-necked grace,
But I'm strong, fast and free.

I am Kestrel, the proud, the beautiful,
I am a falcon, I am a Hawk.

Dreams are made of love and freathers,
That soar above the physical things,
I have a body, but I am wings,
Let me lift you beyond,to the height of your dreams.

I am Kestrel, the lover, the killer, the taker, the giver,
I am a Falcon, I am a Hawk
