Rhapsody on a theme

$4.25 per copy*

It was a Neverland sort of wedding, complete with processional tracks from Riverdance and a reception held under mock clouds that mum had imagined from old parachutes. My daughter asked me to write her a song for the occasion, and I did my best to infuse it with truth and humour, and a bit of philosophy for good measure. It is offered here for general use, believing that other mums and dads might have the same sentiments in mind for their daughters who grew up loving Peter Pan and dancing to Riverdance.

It takes its title from the rhapsodic form which extends the song. And it is definitely theatrical, almost Broadway in feel, requiring the vocalist to change character at a moment’s notice. An unusual approach, but offers high impact if the occasion warrants.

 Unsure how many copies to order?
