||YE BANKS AND BRAES|
||John L. Bell (1989)|
||Arr. © 1989 WGRG, Iona Community (admin. GIA Publications, Inc.)|Text Information:
This 20th-century text from the Iona Community grapples with the realities of illness and pain, not only as they afflict the body but even more as they lay waste to mind and soul. The traditional folk melody helps to convey the sort of communal experience assumed in the last stanza.
