Wild Mountain Thyme

Norlan' Wind ( a poem by Violet Jacob turned into a beautiful song - makes me well up every time I hear it)

I think her desert island thread is about what you would take if you were stranded, isn't it? :o :o

For my funeral ?!? Well I am now inspired to make a recording of me trying to sing - Maybe do something like Hazel O Connor's - Eight Day. The attendees would have to listen (ha ha) and I wouldn't have to be embarrassed cos I'm dead.

That'l teach them all to say I am a rubbish singer!!

Hi Thinboy, actually I think you are right... :o :):

Okay, for my second track... :cry:

(I can actually play a transposed version of this for cello instead of violin. Because I like low notes, heh.)
