How Sweet the Sound

by Doug Von Koss

Origin: Written by Doug Von Koss. The version sung at WAS was taught to us by Francis Weller. This song was brought to Primitive Pursuits by Mink in 2013. Layering this song with “Temple of Melodious Sound” and/or “Honey in the Comb” makes for a good mashup.

How sweet the sound was in the night

The melodies flowed like water

The women sang the moon’s delight

And the men all sang of honey
