I Will Meet You in the Morning
Today (again!) I felt ruffled and uneasy - hemmed in and out of sorts.
When that happens something that restores me is this particular version of this song. It reminds me of the dawn chorus in May - the open, simple singing of birds. The singing is so unaffected, so true and easy. One time before when I posted it here, I remember Buzzfloyd commenting that its quality is to do with the people being so accustomed to singing together. This is so in the way lives groove along too - that some groups grow together (or grow up together) to develop an almost unnoticed synchronicity, harmonising on a deep level.
I thought I'd post the song again (and it's always in the list on my sidebar here if you're ever hunting for it again) because today is Holy Saturday, and some of the words of the song seemed to accord with that.
As I listened to it, I could feel it bringing to mind something else I'd heard. When I stopped and paid attention to that elusive stirring, I found I could track it down quickly. It reminds me of the wonderful recording of a chorus of crickets singing slowed down 800%. Here.
