Her album, "The Mask And Mirror", has a song with lyrics from the poem at
the beginning of St John of the Cross' book "Dark Night Of The Soul".  That
book is alluded to in TSE's Burnt Norton (line 160 & maybe line 96).

	Got that CD a short while ago, dear Rick.
	"The Highwayman came riding, riding, / Riding, up to the old inn
door."

	On her other CD, "The Visit", she did a haunting rendition of
Tennyson's
	"Lady of Shalott":

	On either side the river lie
	Large fields of barley and of rye
	That clothe the wold and meet the sky
	And through the filed a road runs by
	To many-towered Camelot

	And up abnd down the people go,
	Gazing as the lillies blow
	To an island down below,
	The island of Shalott.

	She has prompted me to memorize  the first part of the poem.


	Cheers,

	Gunnar
