Sisters of Mercy [100+DL maxed] by kat330 published on 2013/11/06 11:45:03 +0000 Another page -- four actually -- from the Judy Collins' "Songbook" and probably my final production from that source. This short and very sweet song was never part of my early repertoire, but cfriverdog wondered aloud if I happen to do any Cohen covers. (Thanks for the nudge, Corey!:) Keyboard sounds here include harpsichord, recorder, bassoon, harp and a bit of tremolo strings to begin and to end it. Obviously I can't presume what's in Cohen's mind when he wrote and performs this, but personally I've always imagined the Sisters to be the nine Muses of Greek myth. This was reinforced when I spent a month in Greece less than a decade after he penned the piece, even ferrying to the isle of Hydra where, as I was told, Cohen had a residence at the time.
