Trip To Walden Pond

Another great tune from Hanneke Cassel! Originally written in the knuckle-busting key of B major - which sounds beautifully bright and joyful if you’ve got the chops. I moved it to A for the rest of us.

Walden Pond, where Thoreau spent two chilly and contemplative winters, was a 10 mile bike ride from where I grew up.

He wrote, "Can there not be a government in which the majorities do not virtually decide right and wrong, but conscience? … Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience, then?"
