The Lady of Shalott



I've received quite a few emails regarding my last post and it seems many of us are Lady of Shalott fans. I love the poem...such a fascinating story...and there have been many versons of her recorded by artists.
Thanks to Wendy I have discovered the fabulous Loreena McKennitt who sings the poem...this is glorious............I'm off to YouTube to find more of her songs!

I have several of her CD's and each song is more poetic than the other

My fav Loreena CD (if I had to pick one) is The Mask and The Mirror, with The Book of Secrets as a close second!

TFS this lovely video!
