    THANKYOU for explaining the lyrics and history of this old song. I think your version returns the ethereal quality of this song!

    Really lovely version of this song and as the others have said, it makes a lot more sense now you’ve explained the ‘impossible tasks for the woman to achieve to be the lover of an Elfin Knight’. I’ve shared this on F.B.

    You constantly amaze and delight me with your songs and interpretation of other’s songs, Dave. Thank you ever so much for the education and spiritual enlightenment. I look forward to the whole album.
