Bill Crofut - Dance on a Moonbeam: A Collection of Songs and Poems album download
Although Bill Crofut didn't live to see this outstanding CD released, he worked hard to complete work upon it prior to his death from cancer in January 1999. This ambitious project covers a lot of ground, including folk songs, poetry set to music, Bach, and even Shakespeare sonnets set to music or narrated by actress Meryl Streep. The guest list of performers joining him are just as diverse. Although Crofut was a talented banjo player and singer, he deserves to be better known for his considerable gifts as a composer and arranger.
Dance on a Moonbeam is his final treasure, a gift of sorts to children and their parents, delivered after Crofut's death in January 1999. Steeped in Shakespeare's words and a magical ability to weave together Renaissance-era moods and American folk music, Moonbeam exudes a warmth and soulfulness that Crofut and musical partner Chris Brubeck create with the simplest jo, bass, piano, cello, and voices, mostly. Bill Crofut has the kind of voice which takes you to a safe, warm, calm place. Sounds weird, I know, but he does! I love this collection of songs. We initially bought it for the kids, and then lost it. Bought it again, but this time for us parents.

Completed late in Crofut's life, some months after he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, "Dance on a Moonbeam" features many of the world class artists who knew Crofut or had worked with him in the past. Shortly before his death, Meryl Streep traveled to Crofut’s home in Sandisfield, Mass. where she contributed readings of Shakespeare, which were then interspersed between songs performed by vocalists Julianne Baird, Benjamin Luxon, Dawn Upshaw and Frederica von Stade. Also featured are the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus Angelicus. Of that encounter, Streep wrote that she remembered saying, "Are you THE Bill Crofut, the one of 'Lullabies and Dances?' That record is magical, and I played it like a mantra when I was away on location. Thank you!" Track Listing.
