Thanks! Partnership over the ages…
A bit scary – the soul/voice of the poem was so strong I couldn't find any better words – it was all Donne! ;-)

Taking an old poem and putting music to it! And the end product was so sublime. I think that this was such a cleaver idea, and that you did a really great job here.

Thanks for sharing!

Excellent group of instruments for this. Your guitar work here is super.

Nice job of putting music to a Donne poem! Very much enjoyed this.



Agreed!! I'm always excited to hear a song when I see you've posted it. Not a lot in your style here on the forum. Always very interesting and well done. Great stuff!! Take care. Greg

Wow what a cool song. Loved what you did with these lyrics. The vocal and harmonies were just stellar. Guitar was just super as well. What really stood out for me was how well done the mix is. Just an excellent song all around..

I think this is terrific, a great setting of a great poem. You sound what I think Donne would have sounded like, and I imagine a video set in Lincoln's Inn. Probably 400 years is enough for the copyright to expire, but not our interest.
