Stopping By Woods…

Want to hear something weird? Here’s Sleep with the original text.

It’s actually very difficult for me to listen to this – not because the Frost estate denied me permission, but because I didn’t set the text very well. To my ear it sounds clunky and forced, disregarding prosody and a lot of important vowel changes. (You’ll also notice that I changed a few notes here and there, for the better). Charles Anthony Silvestri not only replaced the poem, he saved the piece. He actually made my music much, much better, on every level.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again: my dear friend Charles Anthony Silvestri is a genius, through and through.


Featuring Eric Whitacre Singers, Hans Zimmer, Hila Plitmann, and Marius Beck
