Joan Szymko is one of my favorite composers and we’re delighted to feature her musical interpretation of the poem Wynken, Blynken and Nod on our concert highlighting the music of women composers. We enjoyed singing maggie and milly and molly and may our first season, and last fall we performed her Nada te turbe on text by Saint Teresa de Avila with the women from Soli Deo Gloria. You can read more about Joan Szymko here.
Ms. Szymko has set this charming text by Eugene Field with elegance and finesse. Each voice in the ensemble has a chance to sparkle, and you can easily hear the wind ruffling the waves and the little wooden shoe rocking the fisherman three! You’ll be enchanted by this lovely lullaby and we look forward to sharing it with you.
