"Shoshone Love Song" is from the album, "O Serafin!" by Nadia Piave and Gino Pengue, released November 2013.
Roger Emerson adapted this tune and text to create a love song to the sun, the moon and the stars. The poem seems to be a prayer of the Shoshone people, who live in parts of Nevada, Montana, Utah and Wyoming, places of 'big sky', like our own Australian country.
