End of April I posted a Danish traditional song which I sang myself.

Stan Loh loved the song and suggested that he would write English lyrics for it. I did an intensive search and could not find that this had been ever done before. So I got pretty excited about the idea.

And Stan really wrote fantastic lyrics that captures the original spirit of the song.

We expect to post a version with a female vocalist in future. But we decided to post this wonderful version where Stan Loh sings both main vocal and backing vocals. But we still hope to post a female vocal version soon.

The backing track is mainly the same I did for the Danish version but naturally I have done a few improvements.

The original Danish version can be found at http://www.icompositions.com/music/song.php?sid=178624

What a treat - two of my favourites on the same track! I remember this when you posted the instrumental, Kenneth - a lovely tune and well played and arranged (I'm a huge fan of folk music, whether it's from these shores or elsewhere). Lovely vocals and harmonies from Stan, with great nature-loving lyrics. What a wonderful piece this is, so calming for the soul.

Hello all ... Sorry for being rude ...I didn't have time to thank all of you individually for listening to this piece. Kenneth's music is wonderful the folk song is so simple, yet so attractive.

I wrote these lyrics in a hotel room in Beijing! Where trees are sparse, but the number of green plants are so much more than the first time I visited Beijing (in the late 80's).

Glad you like this presentation by Kenneth and me. Thanks!

@BigJimSlade ... most folk songs have a comfort feeling, and that's what I got while listening to this song many, many times while writing the lyric!

Thanks for the comment.

Great production guys. Kenneth your arrangement is delightful and Stan's lyrics and singing fit well into the mix.

Not familiar with the original melody, but it deserves greater awareness.

@hywel ... thanks so much for the feedback. I too have never heard this folkie before...

@PaulWilkins ...thanks so much...know what? I didn't hear the "choir effect" until you mentioned it! hahaha...thanks!

@StevenJackson ...thanks so much for listening to this...appreciate it.

@JonSebastian ... I live on the edge of a park, and can hear the cayotes battle for territory or kill on summer nights (when our windows are open)...indeed, I used my surroundings when I wrote the lyrics,,,but then I wrote them in a hotel room in Beijing! hahaha

Thanks guys!

@firecircle2 Thanks Al. Yes. It is easy to make a song like this over-jazzy. I think Stan sings it so well and the lyrics matches the mood I know from the Danish text
