You'll never read Emily Dickinson the same way again, after you try setting
her poems to "The Yellow Rose of Texas", "America the Beautiful", "Yankee
Doodle", the first verse of "Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory", the chorus of
"Jingle Bells"...

BTW, the "Nine Ferrets in a Bottle" song is a masterpiece. It needs to be
set to music and sung in a rollicking chorus at our next gettogether.
