5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare would like it..., February 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sigh No More (Audio CD)
...because he wrote more than a little of it. Five lines from the title song, and the title, are directly from Much Ado About Nothing, including "Serve God, love me and mend" "Live unbruised, we are friends" "One foot in sea and one on shore" and "But man is a giddy thing". And also in "Roll Away Your Stone" the line from Macbeth is "Stars hide your fires; let not light see my black and deep desires." And that's just what I noticed on a quick first listen, which makes me wonder what else is there, and from whom. Not that I don't like this CD; I do, very much. And I fully understand the use of literary allusion, even quoting. I'm just saying it, because I read all of these reviews, and no one else is - although someone thought maybe Shakespeare was an influence. Ya think?
