NOMADMan Lyr Req: Green Grass of Shiloh by Robert Beers (4) RE: Lyr Req: Green Grass of Shiloh by Robert Beers 14 Jun 12


Evelyne and Bob Beers recorded this on their 1972 Biograph LP "The Golden Skein." According to the liner notes: "This was written by Bob and Evelyne Beers after a visit to the Shiloh battlefield. The musical theme is taken from the Pastoral Symphony by Beethoven, and was adapted on the one hundredth anniversary of that tragedy."

I don't know if there are any recordings of the song subsequent to this LP. The melody is indeed instantly recognizable as a bit of Beethoven's 6th.

Regards,
John
