John Anderson, My Jo
John Anderson, My Jo (Vocal). Composed by David Hogg. For Soprano, Piano. Secular. Published by Voice of the Rockies (VR.VOR02V02).
The Robert Burns poem by the same name is very touching...about young love and later more mature love between the same two people as they have climbed the hills together and then are walking down hand in hand later in life. In David Hogg=s usual style, this is tonal, slightly dissonant at times, (though this dissonance rarely has the upper hand,) and melodic.
