Songs of Innocence On Poems of William Blake, 1789

Prelude + Introduction & Epilogue 

Infant Joy 

The Shepherd 

Nurse's Song 

A Cradle Song 

A Dream 


These wonderful timeless ‘songs’ have inspired composers ever since writer-printer William Blake penned them some two centuries ago. I have tried to portray in the musical settings that heartfelt innocence that Blake so beautifully and sensitively brought out in his writing. I was certainly pleased, and honored, that my daughter Karin played them while yet a ‘child’.
