Will the Fat Lady Ever Sing?

21 Nov

I know, you thought we were done with Pilgrim’s Progress.  Then we ran across him on a field trip.  Then he showed up in my son’s writing curriculum.  And now, it seems it still isn’t over.

It turns out that one of my favorite composers, Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote an entire opera on Pilgrim’s Progress.

Here’s a little piece about the piece.

If this comes to town, we’re going. .

    Very interesting. When we were reading DQ, Andy kept hearing classical music inspired by that novel. I’ll have to ask if he’s heard any PP pieces.
