Today I applied for a copyright for my first finished song with Judy Sanger. I wrote the lyrics, and Judy, an experienced composer, did the melody. I’m very grateful for her huge part in making this happen.
The copyright office application process is a bit arcane, but I think I put our names in all the right places. I’ll know in a few hours when I try to download a copy.
The song falls about a fourth the way into my play, Call of a Distant Song. We’re planning to create a CD soon to accompany copies of the script for stage production. I’m also wondering about that closing scene….
