the lyrics for our 'Sustainable Crediton Song!'.
You are invited to set the lyrics to music, creating your
version of the song to perform yourselves and for Sustainable
Crediton to use freely at CredFest 2017 and beyond.
Following the original idea of Pete Mason, the lyrics were
composed at a recent song-writing event, facilitated by performance
poets Ian Beech and Tim King. As a collaborative project, we
need to ensure that everyone's contribution is valued, so please
respect the lyrics in their entirety, retaining complete verses,
etc., as they represent input from everyone at the original
song-writing event. (We don't want anyone's contribution 'lost in
translation'!). If you want to repeat lines - or make some
into a recurring chorus - that will be fine!
We're hoping that lots of musicians will be inspired to take up
our challenge and write music for the lyrics. It will be
great if we end up with various musical styles - folk, rock, jazz,
choral, etc. The choice is yours.
If you would like to become involved or require further
information, please contact me.
