From the recording Waiting For The Call
Death. The Great Inevitable. Some folks trip over The Reaper’s outstretched foot and stumble into harvest. Others gently shed life like a discarded overcoat. This hymn by David Knopfler offers perspective from one poised to lose a loved one. The pastoral arrangement, centered around Jack Gorham’s piano and accordion, packs an emotional wallop. But it’s the singing of Mike Strauss and Lindsay Ryan Horne - a blend of sadness and maternal balm - that tugs the heart.
