American concert artist and editor of the poetry and song Bulletin. These programs feature outstanding musical settings of poetry and the literary anthologies of the world. Thus integrating the fields of music and literature. Here now to give us poetry in song is Hobart Mitchell. When the poets and composers took over from the folk writers the work of writing the poetry and music of a people they were still engaged in the task of putting human reactions and experiences on paper. That is always the source from which poetry music come. Poets and composers become charged with their reactions to life just as we do. In them just as in us the stream of the spirit rises enjoy your anger or. Until it overflows in words and music on paper. The difference is that our expression is naive
and clumsy while theirs is apt and persuasive. They know how to put down their feelings and thoughts on paper with depth and intensity. William Kahn grieves all sleep. In George Frederick Handel setting displays the quiet intensity which trained writers can give to a song. He.

oh oh. Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh. You see we. Oh I.
Really. Another quiet point in that is quite an unusual reaction to death is Edna St. Vincent my lady's epitaph. Which Maurice Besley has said. We know this. I am here with
Horace. Here's what we missed. Poets and composers are basically of the same stuff. They are both creators. They just express themselves in different mediums. And in songs they become partners. Often though they live in different centuries. They joined in giving form and point to some human experience.
When Tom agony has gone back to the 19th century to make a song of John Keats sonnet Brightstar. Pearl writes. Would I were steadfast as there are. No two moans at all on the loaf to the right and to watching the border. Gates was. Very close to still alive.

Jumping from a chair she sat you know it was I mean yes it's an honest book that you can say I'm weary say I'm sad to say and it will just mean I'm growing. You know and he kissed me. Gerald Finzi like many other composers has joined with Shakespeare to make a song.
In this case to give a stylish setting to come away death. Row. 0 0 1 0 0 1. 0 0. 0 0. 0 0.
I was. On my. Way and my. Heart was too loose.
The poets and composers because of their talent and training can give their writings a good focus in careful form yet the essence of their songs comes from the same source of emotional intensity that stimulated those who first saying the spiritual Joshua fit the battle of Jericho which Jay Rosamond Johnson has arranged.
Just read what you off to the bad jailbreak hours come the bad as you read. Yeah yeah I know it's just a bad day rate and you went talk about your king. Yeah you may talk about your man a solo the dead man. Thank God you are where I am the band there read the Jericho story must be right.
