William Byrd's "O Lord Make Thy Servant Elizabeth Our Queen" Sung by The King's Singers

    O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth our Queen to rejoice in thy strength:
    give her her heart's desire, and deny not the request of her lips;
    but prevent her with thine everlasting blessing,
    and give her a long life, even for ever and ever. Amen.
A prayer composed by a crypto-Catholic for a very anti-Catholic monarch.

Glad to see you're back! I found this channel on youtube that has a lot of really great live, acoustic music. It's called The Mahogany Sessions. I know you post a lot of live music so maybe there's something here you might like^^. Peace

Thanks! I stumbled across it searching to fill my insatiable Lisa Hannigan fix. Didn't know they had much more to explore.

I guess you beat me to it!^^ Here is a song that's probably too mainstream for your taste (although it features a banjo, so who knows?). This is "The Cave" by Mumford & Sons performed at Spin Magazine:
