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



Other favourites:

Eurydice

Elvira

Teresa

Atherine 
(sung by Raul)
