Spring is Here

Another late Spring in New England, but it is here. A few trees even have a few leaves!

To celebrate, I offer Daniel Pinkham’s “Awake, O North Wind”

It is from his Wedding Cantata, which is based on passages from The Song of Songs. This song celebrates the coming of the spring rains on ancient Israel. The other analogies I leave to your imagination.

Good stuff, and fun to sing.
