Craiglistlieder by Gabriel Kahane

Magdeburg Music

"These songs draw their texts from actual posts from the web site www.craigslist.org. No words have been contributed by the composer, though in some cases minor editing has been done. It is imperative that the singer commit to a belief in the text and to resist the temptation to comment on the characters portrayed. That said, I encourage the performer to take rhythmic liberties for comic effect." - Gabriel Kahane
