I haven’t posted anything here for a while, and I was hesitant to post this because it is missing the most important part, the lead vocal. So it remains a prototype for now. In any case I have included the melody and lyrics. Instead of a tenor, I gave the melody, for the purpose of a demo, to various tenor instruments, namely cello or horn or even piano. This has necessarily colored and altered the orchestral balance, but is a necessary trade off. It is my first dramatic work, and the most ambitious considering its length, which presented some unique challenges to me both in the arc of the songs and how they fit as a whole, but also many joys of discovery. The songs are sung from the point of view of a ghost who also tells the story. Since there is no acting or recitatives to inform the audience, there are only the songs, the mood and the lyrics. It is a rich art form that I would love to do more of! and I welcome your comments. Thanks!
