FOLK SONGS - Britten and Ravel - Jennifer Coleman Soprano and Bethan Griffiths Harp
Hello! Great to see you again :)
FOLK SONGS is a fun project I had the pleasure of recording with harpist Bethan Griffiths. It is a selection of Greek folk songs sung in French as arranged by Maurice Ravel, and in English as arranged by Benjamin Britten.
I have decided to make these recordings available to you to download for an optional donation. Following on from my debut EP Simple Gifts, I am continuing to fundraise for my studies at the Royal College of Music in London.
The album artwork is a stunning moment captured by Oliver Wright Photography. The photograph is of an arctic frozen bubble reflecting a glimmer of aurora borealis - something that totally amazed and inspired me. I felt compelled to match it to the unique soundscape that voice and harp create together.
Once you have downloaded these songs, SHARE, TWEET, BLOG, GIVE. Send with it my message of music for everyone.
Peace, Love and Music,
P.S. - Whats included?
