Ancora una volta, per la conoscenza di questa canzone debbo tornare a Maggie Holland e al suo album di “cover” del 1983, Still Pause. A lungo, in epoche di mezzi precari e improvvisati, per me questa è stata una canzone di Maggie Holland senza sapere che la canzone era stata, in realtà, scritta nel 1974 da Richard Thompson, membro della prima ora dei Fairport...

Parole e musica di Maggie Holland

‎“The first place to be colonised in the British Empire was England…” (Dick Gaughan)‎

Prima di incidere questa canzone, nel 1999, Maggie Holland era rimasta una folksinger parecchio “di nicchia” nella stessa Inghilterra (e ripenso ancora al fatto di averla conosciuta, in Italia, addirittura nel 1983, all'epoca del suo primo album “Still Pause”; un autentico caso), e con poche probabilità di uscirvi, da quella nicchia, nonostante la sua voce assolutamente non comune (la sua grande amica June Tabor la definì “un misto di passione e ubriachezza”). Fino, appunto, a A Place Called England. Con questa canzone, Maggie Holland uscì da quella nicchia per entrare nella mente e nel cuore di quegli inglesi che volevano continuare... (Continues)

Company Policy

[1988]
Lyrics and music by Martin Carthy
Album: "Right Of Passage"
interpretata anche da Maggie Holland

The wounds sustained in the Falkland War were mainly burns because men were left off shore in boats and landing crafts, waiting for the invasion. They were sitting targets for such Exocet missiles as the Argentinas could lay their hands on. The boats were of super-lightweight construction so they could carry all the electronic hardware that they needed.

Song Itineraries: Falklands (Malvinas) War

Peace is the Chief of all the Worldes Wealth

Testo di / Lyrics by John Gower [1330-1408]
From his Play "Henry IV"
Dal dramma "Enrico IV"
Music: Traditional / Musica: Tradizionale

Un'antichissima testimonianza contro la guerra e per la pace di un poeta che fu amico di Geoffrey Chaucer, che Maggie Holland ha adattato ad una melodia tradizionale.

John Gower, poet and friend of Chaucer, was born around 1330, into a prominent Yorkshire family which held properties in Kent, Yorkshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Gower's coat of arms is identical to those of Sir Robert Gower of Brabourne. Nothing is known of his education, though it has been speculated that he was trained in law. Gower himself held properties in Suffolk and Kent, where he seems to have resided until taking up residence in the priory of St. Mary Overies in Southwark, London, around 1377.
Gower's first work was Mirour de l'Omme (i.e. Mirror of Man) (wr. 1376-79), an allegorical... (Continues)
