Sheet Music: Score
Rainsong : for soprano, flute, guitar quartet & cello / music by Richard Charlton ; words by Roland Robinson.
by Richard Charlton (1999)
The text for Rainsong is taken from Robinson's poem, Northern Oriole and I have tried to evoke that "lushness" and atmosphere after a rainstorm; when the air is cleared, leaves drip and birds call out!
