Thread Name: She Moved Through the Fair - advice
Subject: RE: She Moved Through the Fair - advice
Thought I'd just step into this old thread and mention a couple of versions that haven't been mentioned earlier.
One is by counter tenor Andreas Scholl on the album 'Wayfaring Stranger', on which he sings folk songs from the British Isles, all very beautifully arranged, and he has a stunning voice. He sings the four verse version, with "dead love" in the fourth verse, so perhaps - as I gather from the lengthy discussion on this subject here on the forum - he is not as true to the "original" (not intended as an invitation to discuss what's original - I just mean the oldest available sources) as many would want.

Another beautiful version is recorded by the Irish (I think) folk music group Slaínte on their record "Cup of Tea". Beautiful. Four verse version. Fourth verse "I dreamt it last night that my young love came in".
