Turn! Turn! Turn! (Book and CD) by Pete Seeger


To evrything
there is a season
and a time
for evry purpose
under heaven.

For thousands of years Ecclesiastes beautiful words have inspired and given solace to people all over the world.

Pete Seeger was so moved by these words that he set the psalm to music and added a refrain and a line of his own. Turn! Turn! Turn! was recorded in 1962 by the Byrds. You can still hear the song on the radio today -- more than forty years later.

Now Wendy Anderson Halperin lends her talent and artistic vision to the famous song, creating a book like no other. Wendys art invites you to turn, turn, turn the pages and investigate all the different ways people live and laugh, love and mourn, and the ways in which war and peace affect humanity.

Its your turn now, to read the words of Ecclesiastes, listen to Pete Seegers music, gaze at Wendy Anderson Halperins illustrations, and contemplate what being human is all about.

Seeger waited until to record it, releasing the song on his album "The Bitter and The Sweet" on Columbia Records. The lyrics are taken almost verbatim from the King James version of the Bible, Ecclesiastes

The lyrics — except for the title, which is repeated throughout the song, and the final two lines — consist of the first eight verses of the third chapter of the biblical Book of Ecclesiastes. The song became an international hit in late when it was adapted by the American folk rock group the Byrds. The single entered the U. The lyrics are taken almost verbatim from the book of Ecclesiastes, as found in the King James Version of the Bible [2] Ecclesiastes , though the sequence of the words was rearranged for the song. Ecclesiastes is traditionally ascribed to King Solomon who would have written it in the 10th century BC, but believed by a significant group of biblical scholars to date much later, up to the third century BC.
