Thread Name: Origins: The Magpie (David Dodds)
Subject: RE: The Magpie
Nice to see this thread resolved - The Magpie is still one of my favorite songs to sing. I don't have the foggiest notion how to annotate melodies on the computer, though. I learned it from the US group, Magpie (Greg Artzner and Terry Leonino), and Sally Rogers and Howie Bursen have also recorded it over here. It's a haunting song, and is fun to sing in parallel fifths with a partner.
