Song of the Day – “New Music” Wednesday – “Only in Songs” – Tift Merritt

Tift Merritt, in conjunction with pianist Simone Dinnerstein, gave me what I didn’t know I wanted – folk songs combined with German lieder.

Merritt’s “Only in Songs” merges into Franz Schubert’s “Night and Dreams” and it’s really quite lovely. Give it a try.

From 2013’s Night.
