Rags and Bones

Rags and Bones

Liner Notes: 

This is in the style of an old London street call. I turned it into a round. I added some questionable recorder and bodhran. Composition and recording took just about an hour.


Rags and bones. Rags and bones.
A crust my feast, the street my home
Give a coin for the song I sing
and I'll live finer than a king

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

really really short lyric
but the way you sing it
makes it feel a lot longer
yes you hit the nail on the head
this sounds perfect
for what you aimed at doing here

nice song

Has a real renaissance feel, I really dig this. It feels like something that would be sung by a group at this time with maybe some improvisation.

I like the whistle and the round was a good choice, I think. The doubled vocals makes the melody stand out and adds to the fullness in the midst of the round. I, too, could hear this performed in a group setting, a choir.

Lovely "traditional" song you got here.
The layered vocals are really effective.
The recorder adds an aspect of playfulness to this - I'm imagining the "rags 'n' bones chorus" dancing through the streets as they sing.
