Feeling the Sense.
This track by Maddy Prior and June Tabor - The Silly Sisters - has long been a favourite. The lyrics, melody and harmonies are relatively unimportant in themselves. What attracts me is something deeper, something you might call 'the sense behind the sound.' For me, the sense behind the sound is always what decides whether or not a piece of music earns a place at the top table.
