"Lover's Lament" is a setting of a traditional Appalachian folk song. It is another of the "settings" created in the larger portfolio of works by Randall Davidson called American Songs.
This 3-minute setting of an Appalachian lyric and melody is intermediate difficulty and can be sung by most high school or community choirs. This was composed in 1991 as part of a larger project inspired by Carl Sandburg's "The American Songbag." Other works in this series may eventually find their way onto this website but for now you are free to download the work and use it.
