THE WHITSUN DANCE
SONGS FROM THE BALCONY
Today we're in the porch (still on the balcony) as it's windy out and we were being buffeted about. Singing AJ Marshall's "The Whitsun Dance", a moving song which paints a beautiful and heartbreakingly accurate picture of women who lost their menfolk to the first world war. It's taken me years to not weep a little when singing this song, what a combination of sorrow and beauty.
