Walking in the Cradle of Our Land by Malcolm Dalglish–c/o Rachel Carlson and Six Degree Singers

1 year ago



Premiered as part of the Carpe Diem Arts-Washington Revels Earth Day Festival presented on the eve of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, April 21, 2020. Audio engineer: Charlie Pilzer (Charlie@CharliePilzer.com); video editor: Liz Porter (lizporter.video@gmail.com). Composer Malcolm Dalglish introduced the piece, describing his inspiration for the song coming from hikes in Zion and Yosemite National Parks where elemental landforms reach like stairways into the sky. The last verse harkens to the old growth deciduous forests of his home in southern Indiana. The upper descant melody is borrowed from the old Irish “March of the King of Laois.” It can be heard on Malcolm Dalglish’s “Into the Sky” recording c/o www.OoliticMusic.com
