She Moved Through The Fair

Traditional Irish Folk Song

"She Moved Through the Fair" (or "She Moves Through the Fair") is a traditional Irish folk song, which exists in a number of versions and has been recorded many times. The narrator sees his lover move away from him through the fair, after telling him that since her family will approve, "it will not be long, love, till our wedding day". She returns as a ghost at night, and repeats the words "it will not be long, love, till our wedding day", intimating her own tragic death (possibly at the hands of her disapproving family), as well as the couple's potential reunion in the afterlife.

Rollicking and upbeat, this playful setting of 'Tell My Man,' a traditional Irish children's song, is accented with hand-clapping and foot-stomping.

Both fun and challenging, this soothing 6-part gem is sure to be enjoyed by all. Fred Prentice's compelling arrangement of 'O Danny Boy' has a beautiful tenor solo and rich 8 part harmony throughout. Another King's Singers classic, 'She Moved Through The Fair,' this beautiful Irish ballad is one of the their favorite and most-requested concert selections. With 'The Irish Blessing,' Joyce Eilers Bacak uses the traditional lyric, "May the road rise to meet you." Her a cappella creation makes a moving, easily-taught concert closer.

Cambridge Singers : The Sprig of Thyme

"For children growing up in postwar England as I did, traditional songs still form a common musical currency. These songs brought me delight and pleasure then, and they still do now, though pleasure has become tinged with nostalgia because, for the most part, they are forgotten and gone from our lives, perhaps forever. This album is an affectionate tribute to their composers and poets; a few were renowned, most were obscure or unknown, but the songs they created were famous, and I remember them fondly." - John Rutter

Voiceworks is a magnificent resource for promoting good singing in pre-schools, schools, community choirs, adult choirs and everywhere that people sing. The Voiceworks books (complete with CDs) are packed with songs and ideas which are practical, motivating, and accessible.

Singing is learned behaviour, and Voiceworks 2 aims to help singers of all ages and experience improve their capability, to develop some techniques, and get pleasure from using their voices. It is claimed that the better people feel about their voices, the better they feel about themselves, so this book is more influential than just a singing book. The music is eclectic, chosen for its accessibility, and can be used progressively as laid out in the book to build confidence and develop vocal technique, or as a 'dip in' resource to suit particular needs.
