THE SALLY GARDENS
SONGS FROM THE BALCONY
The song is a setting of a W B Yeats poem which itself was a creative re-imagining of a part overheard lyric sung by a working class Irish woman. Set to music many times we first arranged this song for my (Isobel's) father who loved it dearly, we played it at his funeral. Today after recording this song we heard that Jim's Aunt Helen "Pussy" Clapp has passed away. In memory of our dearly departed.
