  1. Well, that was lovely. I'm from the Deep South; sounds like you've got a little Southern twang going on there. :) Nice song choice. Best wishes, Tammy

  2. How lovely! You say 'one of our performances'. Is that your voice?

  7. Wow! Poppy, I'll do my part to make this go viral, and then maybe that nightingale will help you fly away to Music City USA and I can finally meet you in person! And R.H. does know a few people in the biz--many are customers of ours. And did I ever tell you that my daughter-in-law is Crystal Gayle and Loretta Lynn's niece? Wish I knew some of the younger stars but my grandson went to high school with Taylor Swift and "claims" she wanted to date him…sure!

    Beautiful job on your video and on Norah's words!

    1. Hi Kimberly,

      Thank you! Yes, occasionally, but since both members of the trio moved to Germany, it's not with the trio. I belonged to an international choir for 10 years, which was fun, and I miss it, since I, too, relocated to the Cretan countryside! Thanks for your question.

  26. Poppy, you are truly a remarkable woman, so very creative in your writing, your photography, your home decorating, everything that you share and more and now your voice. What a beautiful voice, that has just moved me to tears. The Nightingale a stunning looking bird and then the sharing of your lovely voice in song...it made for a perfect Good Morning for me. I miss many posts for which I regret...I am thankful I did not miss this one. Hugs for your day~
