a song for voice, violin, clarinet & piano
Words by Michael Murphy
Music Composed, Performed & Produced by David Paul Jones
Horses was written and recorded in my home studio during Lockdown, March - April 2020. The song is a setting of a poem by a friend Michael Murphy, who kindly allowed me to experiment with transcribing his work into a song — the results of which delighted him given that he is a non-professional writer, nor is his work published.
The recording features my vocals and piano with digitally programmed violin and clarinet. The recording and sheet music is currently unpublished. I will premiere this song, alongside an independent digital release, when live performance becomes possible once again.
