Neil Ginsberg: Bio and other works
NewIssue
voicing: SSA | catalog number: SBMP 1467 | price: $2.25
accompaniment: piano


This vibrant, dramatic setting of the famous Walt Whitman poem would make a great concert opener or closer or centerpiece for a concert. A rhythmic piano accompaniment adds great style and substance to the composition, while the singers, at times in unison, deliver a spirited rendering of the text.

I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat,
the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,
The wood-cutter’s song, the ploughboy’s on his way in the morning,
or at noon intermission or at sundown,
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work,
or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly, Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.

Walt Whitman
