Deor, set to music

After last week's post about the Anglo-Saxon poem, my brother sent me a video of a fellow singing Deor to the accompaniment of a hand-made eight-string lyre. Yes, that sounds like a punchline, but the singing is quite good, and the accompaniment draws you in.

As with so many music videos, I found it easiest to hide the window and listen rather than watch.

Oh yeah. I found it too and thought I shared it. But it's in the quick takes post I never finished.

Melanie, I often think I've blogged something, only to find that I either never started or never finished the post.
