“Shoreline and the Sea is a song of sorrow, longing and regret by the excellent English songwriter, Reg Meuross‚Äč. The plangent lyrics draw the parallels between the cycle of the tides and the mutability of love and the cadences and dying fall of the melody suit the emotion of the song perfectly.” Beautiful and wise words from much missed Stephen Jordan, senior library assistant at the Bodleian, and a man with discerning taste.
