Make  Believe (2019)

Make Believe Dalrymple MacAlpin Album Cover

Make Believe, an archetypal cantata by composer Dalrymple MacAlpin, is a musical invocation of the unfettered imagination.The unconventional score utilizes familiar and exotic instrumentation, at times in distinctive contrast with one another. The idyllic melodies are played and sung against a harmonic landscape, which range in treatment from jubilant playfulness to barbarous dissonance. Make Believe further beguiles the listener by not strictly adhering to any specific genre. Disparate styling’s such as folk, classical, medieval, psychedelia, avant-garde and choral are written with equally diverging form; art song, ballad, chant, lullaby, concert aria and an experimental scherzo. Aside from The Stolen Child, a poem by W.B. Yeats and The Trickster Ferryman, verses by Roald Dahl, the libretto was written by Dalrymple MacAlpin. 

Artist edition, double LP gatefold, limited to 250 copies.
