English Cow Patch

By Kati Harrison | Posted in Vocalise | No Comments

Though I am most grateful to Jonathan Palevsky for filling in on Vocalise, I also secretly know that he loves doing so. Why wouldn’t he? It’s a blast of a show to host! He also likes to pick a theme such as sickness, death or love. Last Saturday when Jonathan filled in for me, he played English music. He chose English, pastoral music or as I’ve heard it called, the English Cow Patch School of Music. 20th century romantic George Butterworth’s songs from A Shropshire Lad are a perfect example of this type of fare and so is Robert Johnson’s (not the bluesman, but the the Renaissance composer) Woods, Rocks and Mountains.
