We are pleased to include "The Nurse's Song" from Three Blake Songs by Daniel Carr in our first issue of Blink.
Click on the links to listen to Carr's new recording of this song and of several of his other works.
Carr has this to say about Nurse's Song:
"Nurse's Song" is the first in a set of three songs to the poetry of William Blake. These were my first attempt at composing "classical" songs for voice and piano. Having grown up listening to far more pop music than classical, these songs tend to have a Pop, Folk and even Broadway influence -- wrapped in the cloak of Classical Music. These simple songs are to be sung with minimal vibrato and ask for a pure, clean tone.
