Lyrics
Fair Phyllis I saw sitting all alone
Feeding her flock near to the mountainside.
The shepherds knew not wither she was gone,
but after her lover Amyntas hied.
Up and down he wandered whilst she was missing;
when he found her, o, then they fell a kissing

Ahhhhh!
Andreas, This takes me back to my youth. Such a very 'English' sound and a joy to hear here at MJ (but what is a 'beat-box'?) I love this, regards M

What a great addition to MJ
I just have not heard sounds like this period. What I love about this fun to listen to do. Is how great these vocals are styled. Love the control of the vocals, in almost a steel guitar fashion, in that the incredible control of the sound of the lead voice has almost a yodel steel guitar control volume pedal. Not sure If I explain what I love about the this tune right.

But talent you have brought to MJ! It has been a real you to listen to your very special sounds.

Way To Go!

Very cool arrangement, presentation and production.

Sort of a Neo-Digitized Renaissance feel to it. ;)

WAY COOL!
This is amazing! It reminds me of the Clockwork Orange soundtrack with the digitized sounding fourth movement of Beethoven's 9th. I'm floored and green with envy!
