[Milton-L] Grant Hart's "The Argument"

I heard him perform some of it in London last month, and had a beery
conversation with him afterwards. I was struck by his intentness and
seriousness. In fact it's a great album, and hardly "tangential" to the
interests of this list. This isn't just a series of songs based on the poem
-- it's an attempt to adapt the poem to a new age and a new medium. It's
probably the most interesting adaptation of PL since Dryden.

You can hear the whole album streamed here (in the UK at least):

A number of rock / folk musicians are working with C17th materials at the
moment.
