Two Songs for Baritone and Guitar

9:00

 

This work features two oddly paired texts: Rumi's Don't Even Think, Just Let Yourself Dream, and the traditional Appalachian folksong, Shady Grove. Not sure how I made those choices, but they work together well. The score samples and recording below are of Shady Grove, a song which may be known to some, but which I doubt anyone has ever heard done this way. It's a neat, different approach to a familiar song.
