Shakespeare Songs (3) for chorus Composer: Ralph Vaughan Williams

http://www.4shared.com/file/81667276/45005bec/06_Three_Shakespeare_Songs_1_Full_Fathom_Five.html

http://www.4shared.com/file/81667326/39b5c59e/07_Three_Shakespeare_Songs_2_The_Cloud_Capp_d_Towers.html

http://www.4shared.com/file/81667338/c716d9d8/08_Three_Shakespeare_Songs_3_Over_Hill_Over_Dale.html

All three of the Songs maintain a pretty consistently quiet dynamic. Rather than create a series of brash, virtuoso showpieces, Vaughan Williams went in the direction of subtlety and restraint.

The first song, Full Fathom Five (from The Tempest), imitates the sounds of bells; the tonality is not quite stable at first, but becomes more so in the contrasting, melodic middle section.

The cloud-capp’d towers from Prospero’s farewell speech in The Tempest, is largely homophonic in texture and quite haunting. Vaughan Williams cited a portion of this text (“We are such stuff as dreams are made on…”) in relation to the eerie and desolate final movement of his Symphony No. 6 (1948), and this song shares in some of that atmosphere.

A brief and lively Over hill, over dale (from A Midsummer Night’s Dream) closes the set.

Flower Songs (5), for chorus, Op. 47 Composer: Benjamin Britten

http://www.4shared.com/file/81667366/5dd9009a/16_To_daffodils.html

http://www.4shared.com/file/81667393/aa2be8da/17_The_succession_of_the_four_sweet_months.html

http://www.4shared.com/file/81667478/a6350a59/20_Ballad_Of_Green_Broom.html

The first of the Five Flower Songs is based on poetry by Robert Herrick. “To Daffodils” compares the life, death, and decay of daffodils to the similar human experiences. This song is written in two-part form. In the first section, Britten divides the chorus into two groups. The sopranos and basses begin the song, and the altos and tenors enter a measure later, musically imitating. A triplet figure is prevalent here. The chorus is redivided in the second section with the sopranos, altos, and tenors presenting the melody while the basses provide the accompaniment, restating the triplet figure.

Britten chose to base the second song on another work by Herrick. “The Succession of Four Sweet Months” is about the months of April, May, June, and July. According to the speaker, each month is more beautiful than the last and July is the greatest month of the year.

“Marsh Flowers” is the third song, based on a poem by George Crabbe. A flower and its swamp environment are the subjects of the poem. This song has many interesting voice combinations and imitations.

The fourth song is based on a John Clare poem, “The Evening Primrose.” The song is a tranquil setting of this description of a pale rose that blooms only at night.

The final song, “Ballad of Green Broom,” is an anonymous poem. The story is of a broom maker and his lazy son. The father forces his son to take up the trade, then the boy weds and grows to become a respected broom maker. The accompaniment of this song conveys an image of metered woodcutting.

“We are such stuff / As dreams are made on, and our little life / Is rounded with a sleep.” (Shakespeare, “The Tempest”)

    “Obots in a snit over Sinclair contacting Donald Young’s family”

    http://caosblog.com/9689

    EXCERPT

    God bless Donald Young and his family, and I think the Obots should leave Sinclair alone.

    If Sinclair isn’t a threat to Obama, then they should just shut up. I mean if Obama didn’t do what Sinclair alleges, why do they go to these extremes, anyway?

    If Obama isn’t implicated in Donald Young’s murder, then why are they going to such great lengths to say that Sinclair is harassing the Young family – when clearly they have received his information and communications, and haven’t objected.

    I didn’t hear her say “and don’t you ever call here again!” Or any such thing.

And like the SCOTUS releasing Cort’s case conference date an hour after my case was denied… it feels like they – SCOTUS and POTUS – are mocking the Constitution and we the people. I have no faith in our Government. It’s like a cult. And we the people are not members.””’

    I’m listening to Phil and growing deeply concerned. Phil keeps saying IF we can GET the evidence through some kind of discovery?? Someone called in with some law that says Obama is a citizen RETROACTIVELY and Phil wasn’t aware of it.

    Truly, IF Phil, Lisa, Linda and a few others are the ONLY ones pursuing this citizenship issue, we are IN TROUBLE and at this point very unlikely to win. Obama is now the POTUS, or appears to the world to be.

    I just learned from an Obama supporter that Rahm Emmanuel got all investigations shut down, today.

    Unless Phil has people in high places working with him behind the scenes (which I have always believed) I don’t see how we can win at this point. I totally support Phil and believe him. There’s just no way that IF Obama were born in Hawaii that he wouldn’t produce a simple BC.

    So many people are fearful b/c of Obama’s background — life history — which is so alarming since we have been fighting terrorism for 7 years. Why are the conservatives who fought so hard being so praising and supportive of Obama? Hannity absolutely knows how dangerous Obama’s history is. This is just overwhelming.

    Hello all,
    Just got in from a marathon WTPC meeting of Colorado County coordinators. There were 21 in attendance. Amazing how long and successfully some of these folks have been peacefully resisting the constitutional abuses of the government. If you don’t believe we live in a police state in the U.S., you need to hear some of these folks experiences. I was greatly surprised at the intelligence and quiet fierceness of these people, especially the women. Yet they are enjoyable and down to earth.

    I discovered one classic looking mountain man that may have been the brightest of all in the room. He has been a county militia leader and has a great rapport with the local law enforcement. I would love to spend some time with him. Not only is he extremely bright and knows how the be a good size fish in a small pond, but he was such a gentle spirit while possessing great leadership skills. Obviously a devoted husband and highly respected in his county.

    I see great potential for the movement in Colorado. The size of meetings seem to be growing and some serious talent available to keep the impetus moving forward.

    Why am I not surprised.

    I discovered several excellent articles written by Rev. M. Bresciani at American Prophet.org.

    In the one about the inauguration of this fraud, he writes:

    Quote:

    Twenty two percent of the United States voted for Obama in the general election. John McCain drew a little under Obama’s tally so that means that 78 percent of the nation either voted for McCain or did not vote at all. With all the hype about the Obama inauguration it seems safe to say not everyone is perfectly thrilled with the choice the 22 percent has made. Let’s see.

    The Rev. goes on and asks whether or not it is OK to use Barry Soetoro – and is that his real name?

    Then he writes:

    This is exactly the kind of question that is bouncing around in the minds of a growing number of the 78 percent of the nation who either sided with McCain or with no one at all. It raises the question of whether it would be wise to wake up the nearly 200 million non-voters who think America is just doing business as usual. If Barack Obama has no more standing than an American Idol winner when the nation gets the drift wouldn’t he be waking a sleeping giant to his own dismay?

    Many think it is not a question of if the American people will wake up but only when. No president has been able to withstand his own un-popular and failed decisions while in office. That Obama will make such mistakes is a foregone, it is only how soon and how bad.

    The truth about this usurper will one day come out. I don’t know when or how, but it will.

    The Bible tells us:

    Num 32:23 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.

    It does not in anyway take away or interfere with the LEGAL adoption by his Step-Father Lolo Soetoro, not take away the fact that he was/is an Indonesian citizen!!

    The Master has already issued an order to close down the military tribunals at Gitmo. The judge is considering whether he is obliged to comply.

    Note that 5 defendants on Monday shouted that they were guilty of plotting the 9-11 attacks, and demanded the death penalty.

    Another tribunal is dealing with the murder charge against Omar Khadr.

    Since he cares so much for these filth. Maybe they could be all be moved to the White House. Jefe Obama could set them up in his daughters’ bedroom…

    On Obomber’s role as Khadr’s saviour:

    http://www.google.com/hostednews/canadianpress/article/ALeqM5jlu-JmM-_nAufUCo_hGJrsloKqDQ

    Note that the terrorist Khadr family owes the families of two US soldiers $102,600,000.

    Wikipedia:

    “Sgt. Layne Morris and Sgt. Speer’s widow Tabitha…launched a joint civil suit against the estate of Khadr – claiming that the father’s failure to control Omar resulted in the loss of Speers’ life and Morris’ right eye. Since American law doesn’t allow civil lawsuits against “acts of war”, Speer and Morris relied on the argument that Omar throwing a grenade was an act of terrorism, rather than war. Utah District Judge Paul Cassell gave his ruling on February 17, 2006, awarding $102.6 million in damages, approximately $94 million to Speer and $8 million to Morris in what he said likely marks the first time terrorist acts have resulted in civil liabilities. It has been suggested that the plaintiffs might collect funds via the U.S. Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, but since the Federal government is not bound by civil rulings, it has refused to release Khadr’s frozen assets.”
