Romance and passion in one beautiful voice

image_pdfimage_print

“Blow the Wind Southerly”  a traditional Northumbrian folk song, appeared on a link on my Spotify list and I was immediately taken back to Sunday nights; family supper listening to 100 best tunes with Alan Keith.  Kathleen Ferrier was a favourite especially when singing this song.

As a romantic teenager, music lover and choir member I longed to have a voice like hers with the skill and artistic ability to bring such mood into her singing.

 

 

A more recent by Laura Wright:

 

Bryn Terfel has included it on his Homeward Bound CD.   Lovely voice but I struggle with sentiment hearing this in male voice.

You tube has many more versions.  Which one is your favourite?  Join the conversations and connect.
