Sunrise written and performed by Jacqueline Pollauf
Sunrise is an intertwining of two songs, the well-known You Are My Sunshine, and Colours, written by the British singer/songwriter Donovan in the 1960’s. I was working on an arrangement of each piece separately, and somehow they ended up weaving their way together. For many of the transitions in the piece, the two melodies join seamlessly together. In the end, I came up with a title that melds lyrics from both pieces as well.
