“The Lady of Shalott”

Anybody who can play a standard harp and sing at the same time is good from my perspective. When they can get (and hold) my attention singing a lengthy song in “olde English” some of which is a little bafflingย  to me, then they are really special.

“The Lady of Shalott” has undergone a number of changes over its considerable lifespan, but I believe Tennyson (the apparent original author) would be very happy to hear Loreena McKennitt’s take on his poem.

  1. Yes Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote the poem. My Dad would read poetry to us as children and Tennyson was among the writers he chose. A lovely version. I am very fond of the Harp and as you say to play and sing is a wonderful talent to be admired.
