Musician/composer Ted Jacobs is dedicated to presenting exquisite acoustic musical settings of the world’s most beloved poetry, and it is with tremendous pride that he announces the September 20 release of his third studio CD, Back to the Garden, a collection of songs based on poems from Robert Louis Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses.
Back to the Garden is a collection of some of the most beautifully composed songs I’ve ever heard! Some are peaceful and sweet, others make you want to get up and dance a jig. The lyrics, of course, are wonderful, being the poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson. You’ll hear instruments like the fiddle, mandolin, pipes, and penny whistles – music that would have been heard in the olden days, cheerful and meaningful. The talented voices of different men and women, and even children bring the poetry to life. Listening to this CD is a very moving experience!
Back to the Garden is a delight! As a lover of classic books, olden times, and children’s poetry, I’m in heaven while listening to this CD. It really makes me want to don a twirly old-fashioned dress and start dancing. Emma loves all things music and truly appreciates this CD as well. I’ve been wanting her to memorize short poems and am happy to have her singing the lyrics that are truly Robert Louis Stevenson’s poems. I highly recommend this CD and think it would make a wonderful gift!
