Description
Feter: Cover to Cover tribute

A MacJams dedication to our Feter (pronounced Fee-ter);-) aka Mr. MacJams, aka Firstsies, aka Mr. Encouragement, aka Mr. Blues, aka Mr. Mando, aka Constant Friend- we salute you!

When I heard Feter’s _Her Answer_, I heard a Renaissance type love song, so I made one up. I hope you enjoy it. J

Lyrics
Love is calling...

Whispered prayers into the sky
From a distant, lonely shore

Love will find a way...

She strains to hearn each note
That sings across the windswept moor

Love won't be denied...

Time and distance hold no power
As she kneels to pray
She sends her answer back to him
The wind carries it away

He hears her answer on the wind
The two hearts have entwined

Nothing can stop love...

Wow!
Ya gotta be fast to get a comment in on one of your posts, Roxy!
This is simply beautiful in its understatement from the gentle accompaniment to your wonderful harmony, to the power of your subtle lyrics. This is such a gentle song that is well-played, well-expressed, and heartfelt. Congratulations. You are in top form here.
Peace.
Paul

Thank you, Paul. Feter's beautiful and melancholy tune needed a love song. It was short, so the lyrics needed to convey the whole story in a few lines. I'm glad I was able to pull it off, and that you liked it so much. :-)

kristyjo said 3008 days ago (May 24th, 2009)
This reminds me -
of Child's Ballads. They are old English, Scottish and Irish, but were collected from hill people in Appalachia. Anyway, your delivery has some of that solid, 'been through some disappointments' sound to it, but the lyrics are so etherial and magical. It's a wonderful combination, along with the vocal harmonies and the spare string accompaniment. beautiful!

I guess love is often bittersweet and full of longing, and we've all experienced disappointment. Yet hope abounds! :-) Thank you for commenting and for your gracious appreciation of this style of singing.

Feter has a very nice piece here, and you fit this in beautifully Roxy. The lyrics are memorable and perfect for the renaissance flavor. The harmonies knock me over, as usual. Thank you both. Your collaborations are always so natural, and always a treat. Peace. Terry

I'm happy that I was able to do a Feter cover that came out so well. His tune was fine as a stand alone, but you know i need to harmonize. Thank you for listening to it.

Char said 3006 days ago (May 25th, 2009)
I'm going to be honest.
What I have liked about Feter's songs is your singing in them. You are uplifting and sweet and do harmonies like no one else. Thanks.

Roxylee said 3006 days ago (May 26th, 2009)
I'm glad you like my singing, Char
and glad my mom taught me to harmonize. I think adding female harmony to a male voice gives it some nice color and hope, when the song has a melancholy feel. Thank you for the appreciation.
