More Songs from Tagore 2
Songs of Tagore Volume II All twelve songs in the album have been chosen by Anjana. Themes of these songs are about the universe as we see, feel and deal with it with all our emotion. We cannot fathom it's endless mystery. We can but say "Here you are" in Tagore's own words. "This is what this World is with which art has such intimate relationship"--- such emotion can only be expressed in poetic forms or through music! Lyrics and Music were composed by Rabindranath Tagore. Many of the songs vocalized by Anjana Dey were taught by Subinoy Roy when she was his student. Dave Isaacs (Nashville) is the current voice coach. Music arrangements and CD production are by Brent Moyer, Nashville. Tagore and His India Rabindranath Tagore, who died in 1941 at the age of eighty, is a towering figure in the millennium-old literature of Bengal. Anyone who becomes familiar with this large and flourishing tradition will be impressed by the power of Tagore's presence in Bangladesh and in India. His poetry as well as his novels, short stories, and essays are very widely read, and the songs he composed reverberate around the eastern part of India and throughout Bangladesh.
