Music from Incarnation — Red Dragonfly, Kosaku Yamada arranged by Grayston Ives

As the boys continue to enjoy the unique experience of being able to sing safely and freely together, we wanted to bring you some of the music they are making.   Here is Kosaku Yamada’s Red Dragonfly, as arranged by Grayston Ives.  Composed in 1927 with lyrics from a poem by Rofu Miki, the song is a much-loved children’s song in Japan.  Filled with longing, the lyrics recall a red dragonfly seen by the speaker as an infant while being carried on an older sister’s shoulder.
