Poems from two 19th century poets brought to life by music. The poems inspired the music which now, almost two centuries later, gives the poems their due. Hover over the word 'story' to read details about each song.
All poems but the first and last are by Caroline (Danske) Bedinger Dandridge, 1854-1914. She was born in Copenhagen, Denmark when her father, Henry Bedinger III was the first U.S. ambassador to that country. Her cousin, Daniel Lucas Bedinger, 1836-1909, wrote the first and last poems on this CD. Terry Tucker composed the music, bringing the lantern into the poet's' garden and illuminating the poems.
