Yes, yes, that is the song!

So what is it about Bjornsborg that it has produced at least two premier

But since it's your song, could I get a copy of  the words, and do you have
sheet music? Or do you have a recording of a performance that I could send a
tape to get a copy?
Does Master Cynric have a copy?

I just recently got a CD from him with "Song of the Bordermen" on it and may
soon wear it out!

And let me express my respect for your skills as a wordsmith. I like that song's
imagry and powerful phrasing.
