Now Sweetened With Strings

You may have enjoyed the flute quartet version of The Mysterious Forest, by the Library's composer, whom I call The Music Man.  He has now composed a string quartet arrangement of the CD, which is available for your listening pleasure on the MPL YouTube Channel.  Also right here.  That's because I'm an ace feline roving reporter who scoops all the big cable news outlets.

In this "music video," the Library used still images of the CD inserts from the original flute arrangements of The Mysterious Forest.  We have the new CD inserts for the string quartet version, but those haven't been digitally scanned or uploaded yet.  We'll put them up on this blog post later, as soon as my minions make it so.

The sheet music for the string arrangements of The Mysterious Forest is available in the Library's Evergreen Indiana online catalog.  Please feel free to check it out, if you have an E.I. library card, or just drop by the MPL Indiana Roving Reporter Room.

We hope you enjoy listening to this collection of string instrumental songs.  The Music Man composes (on a volunteer basis) for my Library, so the least we can do is share his fine original compositions with my loyal readers.

For more information about the MPL composer and to find other free listening opportunities for some of his many other original works, you know what to do.

We invite you to watch our videos (on YouTube or our website), most of which feature the Music Man's soundtracks--including selections from both versions of The Mysterious Forest.

P.S.  When the Music Man was in the upper elementary school grades, he, like Scowl-Face when he was the same age (but a thousand years before), enjoyed the music of the Monkees.  They both especially liked Michael Nesmith's experimental tunes, like "Auntie's Municipal Court," which appeared on the LP The Birds, the Bees, & the Monkees (1968).  Nesmith co-wrote the song with Keith Allison, who performed with Paul Revere & the Raiders.
