Kate Bramley Harmony Workshop Auckland Folk Festival 2009

As promised at the time, here are the Words and Music (76KB jpeg) to 1 of the songs from Kate Bramley's harmony workshop at the 2009 Auckland Folk Festival.


In the Starlight, in the starlight at the daylight's dewy close

When the nightingale is singing, his last love song to the rose


In the starlight, in the starlight, where the breezes softly play

From the glitter of our dwelling, we will softly steal away


Where the silvery waters murmur, by the margin of the sea,

In the starlight, in the starlight, we will wander gay and free.


Come my friends, take back your anger,

And let your sorrow's be no more

For we'll surely meet again

Upon some strange and foreign shore

Come my friend and take my hand

Heed not the Atlantic roar

And we'll meet again in our own Canaan.


And if our tired and lonely lives,

Run such a steady course apart,

And time our land cannot unite,

Then Canaan will rejoin our hearts.

Come my friend and take my hand

Fear not the Atlantic roar

And we'll meet again in our own Canaan.
