Subject: Tune Req: Alexandrine sonnet tune re Dr. King
From: Haruo
Date: 24 Jun 10 - 05:44 AM

In the Esperanto hymnal Adoru there's a sonnet in memory of Dr. Martin Luther King. I'd like to find a good tune to sing it to. It's what I think is called an Alexandrine sonnet, 14 lines, 12 syllables each, trochaic (DAH-dit), rhymed ABBA ABBA CDC DCD (though actually the fourth line is eleven syllables because the final -o is elided; it could be restored if the tune needed it. For that matter, any or all of the A-lines could be either 11 or 12 syllables. Anybody got any suggestions for a tune?
