Lions, Spiders & Flies for Medium Voice
This setting for medium voice of two poems by Vachel Lindsay would make a humorous addition for any concert, but would really be a hit at any Halloween event. The first song, "The Lion", describes how the strife of a pride of lions is put to peace when an explorer unwittingly becomes dinner. The second song, "The Spider and the Ghost of the Fly" is written from the perspective of the fly, who loved, unfortunately, the spider. The set was originally written in 1998, entitled "Two Songs to Frighten Young Children." This updated version was produced in 2005.
