Blake's Song of Free Speech & Song

There were already so many great spoken word offerings for this project, so I chose to upload an a-cappella. I was inspired by the great poet, William Blake, an early proponent of free-speech. I imagined what he might have thought of this project and wrote an original fantasied lyric from that standpoint, sung in a kind of English lament/balled style. My pell has two versions in different keys (higher and lower register).
Lyrics unbridled
Freedom released
Who owns a human thought?
Birds song in trees.

Clouds form great manuscripts
Stars sing Night’s songs
unchained and set free
still the Soul longs.
