27: Smart

Text: Christopher Smart’s “For I Will Consider My Cat Jeoffry,” an excerpt from his longer poem, “Jubilate Agno.”

Version 1: I Sing the Cat Electric.
(A joyous, riotous celebration of the cat, lapsing into occasional moments of meditative contemplation of the cat. Structured around unison choruses.)

Version 2: Live From Debtor’s Prison.
(Shifting from one solo, isolated voice to another.)

Recorded on Saturday, November 13, 2-3:30 pm, at the Baltimore Free School, 1323 N. Calvert.
Chorus: Lillian Bowers (vox), Genevieve de Mahy (vox), Kaveh Haerian (vox), Joe Martin (guitar, drums, mus. dir.), Dara Weinberg (vox, dir.), Jesse Wharton (sax), Gavin Whitt (vox)
Guests: Hilary Leithauser
