Lyrics
My young love said to me,"My mother won't mind..and my father won't slight you, for your lack of kind."
Then, he laid his hand on me and, this, he did say, "It will not be long, Love, 'till our wedding day."
>
He stepped away from me and he moved through the fair. So fondly I did watch him, move here and move there.
Then, he made his way homeward, with one star awake, as swans in the evening move over the lake.
>
In dream, last night, to me..my love, he chanced in.
And, so lightly he stepped near, his feet made no din.
He leaned close in, beside me.. when, this he did say, "It will not be long, Love, 'till our wedding day".
>
Town's people said to me..when two miss bein' wed,
one must swallow the sorrow when her lover's dead.
He had smiled as he left me, that day at the fair.
I remember his touch, then, more than I can bear.
>
My young love said to me, "My mother won't mind..and my father won't slight you, for your lack of kind."
Then, he laid his hand on me and, this, he did say, "It will not be long, Love, 'till our wedding day."

Aw, Scott..
You have been such a wonderfully supportive friend. I wanted folks to hear what I tried to do before the addition of Doug and Caitlin Somers' wonderful music. That is a talented family. Thank you. :)

Oh, Dave,
I must have sung it around 7 times over a year and a half ago, when I was working on it for someone. Then, I picked it up early, this summer and sang it twice, each time with slightly different lyrics. Doug chose this track to put his magic to. Thank you. :)

Maybe the
vibrato works here, and I sure hope that's the case. Thank you. :)

Enchanting
Quite a compelling range and a control over your vibrato. The sparse space design (you on the left, reverb thrown to the right) has me feeling that I've happened upon someone singing in a church without them knowing I'm there. Certainly a haunting tune, thanks for sharing it with us.
PaulaMunk said 2434 days ago (December 22nd, 2010)
Hi, Mike.
There are no effects on this. I didn't even edit out the breaths or pauses. This is what I sent to Doug Somers. Just me in my room in front of the mic. I'm glad you think it sounds okay. Thank you. :)

Oh,
it is so nice of you to come by to hear my try at something Celtic. I have wanted to give it a shot for a long time. It's amazing that I can do sort of thing. Thank you. :)

The singing angel
Celtic music always gets to me, do you have some in your blood? Wonderful singing Char. Hey and the picture is at least tasteful.. ha!

What is it
about Celtic, I wonder? I tried to do well. Hopefully, I'll get better at it. I wanted a sad lady. I was thinking of using a muddy, naked guy but thought, "No, Steve would take offense at that"...;-) Thank you for putting up with me.

Great work Char!
As I mentioned in chat, my heart almost broke when I heard "one must swallow the sorrow when her lover's dead". And I still wish Doug had used the whole thing: I don't think it would have been too long. Oh well, maybe next time.
Cheers.

Yup.
Next time...:) This was so scary, I'll probably never try singing something professionals record and perform..ever again. Thank you. I am so glad you liked it. :)

Celtic Touches
So wonderful to hear the unadorned beauty of your voice! Beautiful song/lyrics. I love the Celtic-style vocal touches in this piece--you execute them very well. Well done! :)

I still
don't know what I'm doing though I try. I was just hoping that it wasn't too awful. You are very nice to me, Cort. Many thanks. :)

Ah,
well, this was all I could do, on my own. Music, I think, framed the vocal. I has taken me some time, but I can listen to myself without grimacing. Music covers up a lot. :) Thank you.
