New: A setting of Elizabeth Bishop’s “The Shampoo”

Recently, California writer and musician Charmane M. Vaianisi wrote to tell us of a collaboration with Oklahoma musician and composer Beau Mansfield: a setting of Elizabeth Bishop’s poem “The Shampoo.” They have posted a recording of this setting on YouTube.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing the link of my setting of "The Shampoo." Charmane Vaianisi's voice was the perfect vehicle for a song idea I'd had for some 17 years, and finally finished, thanks to her encouragement. Sincerely, Beau Mansfield
