Appeasing an earworm, and hoping this might please people like @Macolgan and @omaniblog ; here is Loreena McKennitt's setting of the Stolen Child by W. B. Yeats

This song has, for some reason I cannot explain, been stuck in my head for the past three days. It brings back good memories of better times, so I just had to post it. Perhaps I shall appease the earworm by doing so. :-) This is by Canadian artist Loreena McKennitt, and is from her first album called Elemental. The whole album is absolutely charming. Her later albums include all kinds of instruments from around the world, and while I think they're just as good for different reasons, I like the simplicity of this one. If you want pure Celtic, this is the way to go. #Celtic #folk #McKennitt #music #poetry #Yeats
