Live in the Studio with Pekka Kuusisto & Sam Amidon

Posted on 3 Feb 2017 by Leo Messias

Take a sneak peek inside the ACO studio as Pekka Kuusisto, Sam Amidon and the Australian Chamber Orchestra rehearse Wedding Dress, one of the traditional American folk ballads arranged by Nico Muhly, featured in the Murder & Redemption program.  





WEDDING DRESS LYRICS

 

Oh my dony little gal
Don't you guess
Better be making your wedding dress
Wedding dress, wedding dress
Better be making your wedding dress

 

Oh, it's already made
Trimmed in red
Dressed all around with the golden thread
Golden thread, golden thread
Dressed all around with the golden thread

 

Oh, it's already made
Trimmed in brown
Dressed all around with a golden crown
Golden crown, golden crown
Dressed all around with a golden crown

 

Oh, it's already made
Trimmed in green
Prettiest thing you've ever seen
Ever seen, ever seen
Prettiest thing you've ever seen

 

Oh, it's already made
Trimmed in white
Better be ready for Saturday night
Saturday night, Saturday night
Better be ready for Saturday night

 

Oh, she wouldn't say yes
She wouldn't say no
All she'd do is sit and sew
Sit and sew, sit and sew
All she'd do is sit and sew
