Pretty Saro by : Franklin Gallo
This beautiful folk ballad from 17th century England is haunting and timeless. The lyrics tell the story of an immigrant looking for love in a new and unfamiliar land. Each of the three verses varies in perspective with verse one sung by a baritone soloist accompanied by soaring choral dissonances. The second verse; set in 4-part canon; paints the text; “And writes it by the river where the water o'er flow.” In the final verse; the soprano solo adds an unsettled sense of agony to the text; “And when I get weary; I'll sit down and cry. And think of my Saro; Pretty Saro; my bride.”
