Seven for Old England:buyers who shop here marketplace and its localized counterparts, enjoy a highly personalized experience with an unparalleled selection at great value. I must admit, it is difficult not to think of "Summer Solstice," "Silly Sisters" and "Folk Songs of Olde England, vols 1 amp; 2" when listening to this CD and writing this review. On my first listen, I found myself longing for the fingerstyle guitar artistry of those older recordings. Fortunately, my wife and kids were in the room while I was listening, and they all enjoyed it immensely, so that kept me from being a stodgy old curmudgeon... and I realized that this was a disc that had the power to connect with today's audiences as well as longtime Maddy Prior fans such as myself.The acoustic approach is pure delight, bringing to mind moments from the classic recordings I mentioned before. There are some superb musicians here: 'royalty' like John Kirkpatrick, early music luminaries like John Banks and Giles Lewin, and legacy like the ubiquitous presence of Benji Kirkpatrick (son of John) on the acoustic guitar. Maddy Prior is in fine voice as well as in her element, singing repertory familiar as well as rarely sung. The overall result, as I am realizing on repeated listenings, is a joyful campfire in rural summertime England, bringing ancient songs to life once again.I was especially dazzled by the John Dowland song "Come Again," which was one of the first 'early music' songs I ever heard, sung by Russell Oberlin back in the 1950s. Maddy, as she always does, makes the song her own, with an intimate and evocative accompaniment on the medieval harp.I have to agree with the other reviewer, regarding the 'surprise' ending of the CD. The last track is listed at about 20 minutes in length, while the song (Prior's superb original "Magpie") is only under three minutes. There is a very long silence.... then surprise! In the days before MP3 players, that would have been a fun innovation, but, sadly, there's little room for sneaky wit like that these days. It is a reminder of how things have changed in the way we listen to our recordings. But that shouldn't deter anyone from enjoying this CD, whether a longtime fan (like me) or someone discovering English folk songs for the first time.very popular,san antonio mall,special campaignSeven for Old England

Editorial Reviews

Maddy Prior returns to her English Traditional roots with Seven For Old England. One of the world's purest, most magical vocalists being heard in her most natural form, singing the songs that have inspired her and generations of singers before her. While the new generation has taken the mantle of acoustic troubadours and made it their own, this is an opportunity to hear one of the originators at the peak of her powers.
