Meaningful Melodies: Revived and Recycled Sacred and Secular Songs: Laminated Lyrics

0 Reviews

Many years ago, Walt McConville discovered how challenging, and also how rewarding it was, to compose entirely new lyrics to well-known sacred or secular melodies. Like other types of writing it becomes addictive in an amazingly short time, and following that distant discovery, he has written nearly a hundred of such experimental rhymes, eighty-five being included in Meaningful Melodies.

Each set of lyrics is linked to its proper tune, followed by a brief explanation, where necessary, as to how it came about.

The eighty-five items, then, are here now to be enjoyed and, when and wherever possible, participated in by the discerning or knowledgeable reader or musical buff.
