Something I'm intending to do more of is posting poems along with musical settings of them.  Here's the first.




Mid-Winter Songs: Intercession in Late October
Composed by Marten Lauridsen
Performed by Paul Salmunovich and the Los Angeles Master Chorale
Lauridsen: Lux Aeterna




Intercession in Late October
- Robert Graves

How hard the year dies; no frost yet.
On drifts of yellow sand Midas reclines,
Fearless of moaning reed or sullen wave.
Firm and fragrant still the brambleberries.
On ivy bloom butterflies wag.

Spare him a little longer, Crone,
For his clean hands and love-submissive heart.
