Musical Settings of Arcadia Songs (Edward Plough, Kevin Carney)

We’re proud to announce that we’re beginning to make available recordings of newly set Arcadia songs in connection with Sir Philip Sidney’s Arcadia: A Restoration in Contemporary English of the Complete 1593 Edition of The Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia (The Parlor Press 2017). Edward Plough (SUNY Farmingdale) is composing and performing the new settings, and and Kevin Carney is producing them. Here’s a taste of what’s coming: in the middle of Book Two, the lovesick and sexually confused Princess Philoclea sings her lament “Over these brooks” (Parlor Press edition p. 214).
