KSFR's gift to Santa Fe on its 400th anniversary (Podcast)
(2009-09-23)
"The Sounds of the City" lyrics
(KSFR) -
-- It's the 400th anniversary of the founding of the city of Santa Fe, the oldest, continuing capital city in the United States.

In commemoration of the anniversary, KSFR has made a gift to the city. KSFR's Bill Dupuy conceived the idea of creating a choral, audio gift. He and KSFR's Dan Gerrity found a traditional melody in the public domain and created lyrics to fit. Kenneth Knight and the New Mexico Men's Camerata stepped up, contributing their time and talent to performing "The Sounds of the City." Another contribution came from Santa Fean Jack Loeffler, a renowed historian, radio producer and recordist.
