When we started rehearsals for the album, we decided to include a few classic covers and auditioned a small handful of them. Julie put her foot down and demanded that we include The Water Is Wide, as she has loved the song all of her life. We kept the arrangement rather spare and open, so that Julie’s beautiful voice could shine through. She doubled her violin and viola parts again, and Adrienne Walsh sat in to add another cello part for us. As part of our arrangement, we reworked the end tag of the song, to give it a sadder, heart aching quality.
