Interlude 1: The Garden Of Song

by Benjamin Longman



‘The Garden of Song’ is comprised of five musical adaptations of poems found in a 1911 anthology of the same name, and one additional original song thrown in for good measure. Marrying the luscious poetic imagery of turn-of-the-century Romanticism with sonic textures heavily inspired by the British folk revival movement of the 60s and 70s, ‘The Garden of Song’ seeks to explore how these century-old words sung in a classic style can still hold such contemporary relevance.
