Curmudgeonly comments documenting an unsuccessful attempt to remain in the Episcopal Church (USA) and the Anglican Communion at the same time---with some leavening for good measure.
Good choice! I'm a longtime fan of the ever-evolving Natalie Merchant. I put up a post on my blog showing her singing with her former band, 10,000 Maniacs, in 1981 and with David Byrne in 1993: http://bit.ly/aQSzrUOne warning, A.S.: she's known to be a liberal activist, which for me is part of her appeal: http://bit.ly/d3PhynIn fact, Merchant does a stirring rendition of the old labor union standard, "Which Side Are You On?" It's on her album "The House Carpenter's Daughter," which has a number of traditional American and English tunes.Thanks and enjoy!
