What's your favorite period song?
« on: May 30, 2013, 09:26:48 PM »
It's so hard to choose just one, but if I had to, I would certainly say "The Maid who Sold her Barley" performed by Celtic Wonder

]The Maid That Sold Her Barley Lyrics

A close second is "Shikee Shikee Baba" by Circa Paleo.

^ My favorite live performance

How about for you?

I really like this version of "Hélas madame" by Skarazula.

Dona! What a lovely Oboe (if I hear correctly) and baritone voice!

And Bob, the flute goes so well with those tambourine sounds! I want one of those flutes for my own :)

I would say my fave is "Wilde Mountain Thyme".  I like several renditions by:

Ezndil  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VJTPpV3N_4

Jesse Linder (RIP)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxU7zoLvp0s

Tullamore from Kansas City has a great rendition as "Will Ye Go Lassie Go?" on their "Wild And Wicked Youth" cd as well.

I also like to see Ezra get a workout when I suggest that they play "The Rocky Road To Dublin".

My last absolute favorite would be "The Celt Came Back" by Fugli Troll.  That's on his "On The Woad" cd at www.povera.com
It's a great song about never giving up.

"O'er the Hills and Far Away". Partially because there are so many different historic versions of it.

Most people probably know it from Sharpe's Rifles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOeYPpOblAw
But it actually goes back at least as far as the 17th century. One of the older versions is about a lad who has been wronged
   " Since she is false whom I adore
    I'll never trust a woman more;
    Frae a' their charms I'll flee away
    And on my pipes I'll sweetly play:

        -O'er hills and dales and far away
"
