    Resource: Musical Settings of MP Poetry

    Some good friends of mine from Nashville have a band that writes scripture music for kids (one is an HLN/MP mama!). They just released a new album and to my great delight it featured a musical setting of "All Things Bright and Beautiful" which was our second grade poem last week. I will share it below. It got me thinking that it would be a great resource to compile musical settings of poetry selected for MP memorization or enrichment. Would you mind sharing your favorites?

    Rain for Roots (www.rainforroots.com) "All Things Bright and Beautiful" single here on Spotify, album on their site.

    Other favorites of ours I've put on this Spotify Playlist: Memoria Press Poetry for the Grammar Stage. This has a mix of some music and a few read aloud.

    Festina lentē,

    Catchy! Nice.

    Someone on YouTube had a nice piano rendition of the songs Mrs. Poppers played for the penguins in the basement (from MP3 lit). I thought that was pretty cool. I confess I haven't thought of putting poetry to music (other than the Psalms).

      I'd love to hear if it you don't mind posting.

        Schubert's "Military March": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mT0_hdAxkU0

        A slightly more animated version (live duet): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FD6Q2jcUDb4


        "By the Brook" starts at 1:16 (min:sec): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEGeyESjlwg

        "Merry Widow March" (I can hear the mistakes he makes, but I love that this young boy tries and plays well for his age, so it might inspire a young pianist): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1W3nJuxawc

          I have a post that was not approved...perhaps too many links?
