Once When I Was Very Young (from Four New England Pieces)


Lyrics by Michael Brubeck, adapted by John Jenney
Music by Dave Brubeck

Notes from the Composer:
Childhood memories are evoked in this setting of a poem written by my son, Michael, and adapted by John Jenney. Such nostalgic recollections are common to us all, I think, especially those of us who grew up in small towns. I chose a harmonic setting, which harkens back to the familiar songs of my own youth.
