recently I heard the Lorenna McKennitt version of this medieval folk song. Her version I found captivating...it was like an invocation, measured and in a voice reminiscent of a crone around a cauldron.
Actually that is a compliment not a criticism...what I mean is that her voice has a hypnotic spell casting effect which I tried to emulate and ended up channeling Helene Bonham Carter instead. Its long and it wont be to everyone's taste, but I thank you if you take a listen smileyThis is my first attempt at looping a piece of music...it is rough in parts
The album art is a photo of me. from my growing old disgracefully files smiley

Thank you Zam smiley
Gary what a lovely thing to say I really appreciate you taking the time to listen and leave a comment, and such a gentlemanly one at that. I have kinda botched the pic a bit by colouring the shirt green but the original has won quite a few awards for the photographer

Loving this!
Love the minimalism in the singing, the lazyness, the truth on it; just telling the words sometimes, and hitting the right notes in the climaxes (is that a word?)
Have to be really good to sing this this way.
I would love an acap version, maybe with second voices singing some penta backgrounds.
Not only this will be in my iPod: all my friends will listen to it.

Gracias!

macoco.

James Yes it reminds me of England too, but Robin Hood was Norman and this song is Tudor, several hundred years difference. Hard to believe there are trees in Sherwood forest that still date back to Norman times smiley They are protected and wired up so as they wont fall down smiley

Sung with real feeling and expression, quite haunting too. And as I don't really understand how loops work just from my ignorance I'm impressed that you created the melifluous (sp?) backing from them!! A clever link from the photo it seems, and please carry on growing old disgracefully smiley
