The Maine Woods With Music
David Mallett's latest offering has him reading the words of Henry David Thoreau.
Mallett’s new CD, "The Fable True," includes 22 selections from "The Maine Woods," Thoreau’s account of three mid-19th century journeys to Maine, where he traveled up the Penobscot River, to Greenville, down the West Branch of the Penobscot, and scaled Mount Katahdin. Mallett’s fine, strong voice is well-suited to the material, which he reads on the CD, backed by acoustic instrumental music he composed and thematically matched to the selections. [Link]
