General Information

Title: Four Blake Songs
Composer: Huub de Lange

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SecularPartsong

Language: English
Published: 2007
Instruments: a cappella
Description: Compositions on poems by William Blake (1757-1827).
Composer's Note: The setting of "Laughing Song' has been a variation of a setting that was originally made for Hermann Hesse's poem Blumen nach einem Unwetter. On second thoughts I have decided to keep the music exclusively for the original poem that inspired the music to come alive. Therefore the pdf- and mp3 files are not available anymore. At the moment (October 2012) I am working on a brand new tailermade setting of 'Laughing Song'. I hope to be able to publish it on CPDL in November.
