The Present Tense: Songs of Sydney Carter

The songs of Sydney Carter are an enigma. To fit them neatly into one of the accepted categories – folk, religious, satire or protest is not adequate. They have depth, integrity, and make us face and question our innermost thoughts and conflicts. This is the man who wrote "Lord of the dance", but also "I want to have a little bomb like you".
