Thread Name: Common poems set to music
Subject: RE: Common poems set to music
Since there is still some fairly recent interest in this thread, I'll mention that I have nearly twenty famous poems set to music (some with melodies of my own, some adaptations of traditional folk melodies) on my Kaleidoscope: Great Poems Set to Music page.
Since I can't sing and don't yet have a singer to work with, the sound files use various instruments to simulate voice. But the text is there too, so with a little imagination, I hope you can get a feel for how a performance would sound.
