Song for today

I just discovered this band last night, but it was immediate love...Don't have the exact  words to their arrangement of this old, old song, but it is excellent...

Very nice arrangement, although I found the modern words a bit jarring. I don't think I've heard this song since Kenny and Tzipora were together and used to tour the pagan festival circuit (like, twenty years ago)!

I thought it was a good adaptation, since I don't have it memorized, so it didn't jar...plus I was reading it while listening (the youtube site version has it in the information section)...I stumbled across them last night looking at old steeleye span and Pentangle music...and fell immediately in love with what they do. If you haven't yet, listen to their recording Morrigan. So much of their music sends chills down my spine, and until i discovered them, very few pieces of music did (like only about 3 pieces).

I am so wound up in the old legends and stories right now, I might be extra responsive to this type of stuff, maybe, lost in Celtic (and Norse) Mythic Land, but I just went wow...their music has a lot of magic for me, in whatever sense you wanna use the term.
