  1. I am doing research on debate songs, and would love to hear your rendering (and any others). How could I hear some?!

  2. What a great picture! Especially the harps….being a Celtic Harper I look for those things.
    And love the sound clips for “Syng…”, will have to have Father Christmas/The Green Knight put one in my stocking or under the kilt.
    Best regards,
