This is my letter to the world (that never wrote to me); Emily Dickinson; Raul Scacchi

I keep playing this song, my favourite track from Raul's first album, Emails to Emily (2006):

Listen! My letter to the world, Raul Scacchi setting of the Emily Dickinson poem

The vocal is by Kaliroe Raouzeou.

This is my letter to the world,
That never wrote to me,--
The simple news that Nature told,
With tender majesty.
Her message is committed
To hands I cannot see;
For love of her, sweet countrymen,
Judge tenderly of me!

Raul in Vitsa

Place of composition, Sinarades, Corfu
