Program Notes

In Old English, a scop (pronounced "shop") was a storyteller. Composer Ryan Nowlin weaves a rich tapestry evoking images of medieval life; gallant knights, elegant ladies, and revered kings.

- Program Note by publisher

A Medieval Memory: Song of the Scop is inspired by and dedicated to the composer’s brother, Dr. Steele Nowlin, scholar of medieval literature, English professor. In Old English, the word scop means shaper and it describes someone who was a singer, a poet, a story-maker -- a creator, a scop took the materials of composition -- and wove them together like strands of fabric in a tapestry, thus “shaping” a new creative work. A scop had great power because he or she could shape others’ reality through song and story, establishing for us, the audience, the terms for how we remember what was and dream about what is yet to come.
