about

This recording happened in about 20 minutes. At an after-party for Jenna Mammina's recording session, Blue Coast Music founder Cookie Marenco asked Jenna and Harold if they wanted to record it, hen and there!

That became the fulfillment of a months-long project to bring Lord Byron's beautiful, melancholy poem into the 21st century, with contemporary melody and harmony. Gratitude and happiness only begin to describe what Jenna did with a poem that celebrates its 200th birthday in 2019.

--REVIEWS OF THIS PERFORMANCE--

FROM Wally Eaton / Classics IV founder:

"The song is so heartfelt and beautiful; however, I am not sure I appreciate you making me cry at eleven o' clock in the morning."

Warmest Regards,
Wally

FROM Mark Isham / Feature motion picture soundtrack composer

This is wonderful! What a cool idea and rendered beautifully!

FROM Matt Nathanson / rock star-songwriter:

..and this RULES
and jenna’s voice is heartbreaking…

FROM Joanie Pallatto / Singer, record label owner, producer:

Oh my! How beautiful, and so completely realized. You and Jenna are perfect, I'm sure Lord Byron would approve. Cookie seized the opportunity, so glad she did! Congrats Harold, it's really wonderful.

FROM Bob MacSwain, literature scholar, CEO, Florida East Coast Railway:

One of my favorite poets and my and my father’s favorite.
You merged and created and then were smart enough to silence your voice so the talent could finish. Tell her she made me cry.

FROM Erika, a poet:

I haven't read this poem in many years so it is nice to revisit and reimagine through your song!

lyrics

So We'll Go No More a Roving

Lyrics: George Noel Gordon, the 6th Lord Byron
Music: Harold Fethe

So, we'll go no more a roving
So late into the night
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath
And the soul wears out the breast
And the heart must pause to breathe
And love itself have rest

Though the night was made for loving
And the day returns too soon
Yet we'll go no more a roving
By the light of the moon
