"Walking in the Cradle of Our Land" by Malcolm Dalglish: Six Degree Singers led by Rachel Carlson

3 months ago



The first two verses of Malcolm Dalglish’s “Walking in the Cradle of Our Land” were inspired by 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 Malcolm’s home in southern Indiana. The upper descant melody is borrowed from the old Irish tune, “March of the King of Laois.”
