Thread Name: Common poems set to music
Subject: RE: Common poems set to music
Of course, we Yanks are very familiar with a poem being set to an existing tune. Our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, is a poem written by Francis Scott Key and then set to the tune of English pub song (?) To Anachreon In Heaven.
