Singer Natalie Merchant brings 19th century poetry back to life with her astonishingly lovely voice. Here she is with Nursery Rhyme of Innocence and Experience written by Charles Causley (1917 – 2003).
I had a silver penny
And an apricot tree
And I said to the sailor
On the white quay
‘Sailor O sailor
Will you bring me
If I give you my penny
And my apricot tree
A fez from Algeria
An Arab drum to beat
A little gilt sword
And a parakeet?’
I just came across her singing..a poet/scientist/physician friend shared this with me! What a voice.
