I didn't think this was a race, and I've only reached the 400s because the Forum is so busy now, as it should be. Keep on posting, and you'll be a Senior Member by the autumn! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
To get back on topic, it's interesting to see the Mummers' Dance doing well in the poll, because this track has never been released in the UK. There are a few copies of the Australian special edition around, and I've got one! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
Dave, you might find the Australian bonus CD edition at a cheaper price in the Virgin Megastore at Piccadilly Circus.
Hello Dave, I'm quoting myself again!
The Virgin Megastore at Piccadilly Circus has several copies of the Australian bonus CD edition of "Pure", featuring "The Mummers' Dance" and a live duet of "Pokarekare Ana" with Russell Watson, price £15.99. HMV normally sell this version at £21.99, so it pays to shop around. i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
I believe Hayley sang 'Pokarekare Ana' with Russell Watson several times when she toured with him back in 2002. The most famous performance appears on Russell's DVD from Auckland, recorded on 6th February 2002. See this thread for more information about the DVD.
"Bridal Ballad" all the way!! I was completely obsessed with this song for the longest time. It's one of the main reasons I bought the Odyssey songbook, for the "Bridal Ballad" sheet music!! The main reason i bought the Pure songbook was for the "Dark Waltz" sheet music!
Mary did you know? must be my favourite one, it was the one i was obessed with- love this song and sounds amazing with Hayley's voice. Pokarekare Ana Vocalese must be second, I prefer it to the choir one.
