I don't have documentation on the song, but the artist is John Renbourne.
The song is on an album (tape actually) of his called A Maid in Bedlam, and
is titled on this recording Death and the Lady. As I only own a tape there
are no liner notes for me to look at. I'd check into finding a CD which
would have liner notes and might even have some reference to the song's
origins. John Renbourne is wonderful and I highly recommend anything he's
recorded. Another of his works is called Ship of Fools. A nice collection of
pieces including the Traveller's Prayer, attributed to St. Francis of Assisi.
