Poetry Corner: Edna St. Vincent Millay: "Recuerdo"


Sun Schematic, originally uploaded by gurdonark.

This morning I present a setting of a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay, titled "Recuerdo". The poem was written in 1922. The poem may be heard by clicking on the bow below:






The reader is Peter Yearsley, who recorded this poem for libribox.org.

The accompaniment features the following samples from the freesound project:
Birdsong.mp3 by: Percy Duke
black headed gulls 3.wav by: ERH
BoatHornSam1.wav by: nathanprtII

In additon, it features a sample from "March" by Calendargirl,
http://www.calendarsongs.com, which, as a matter of fact, provide the sample upon which the melody is based.

The song may be heard or downloaded under a Creative Commons attribution non-commerical sharealike license 3.0
