Three Songs of Carl Sandburg (2002)

or soprano and piano
about 6”00

Pre­miere at Mannes Col­lege
New York City
Feb­ru­ary 2003

When I began search­ing through poems to use for this song cycle, New York had recently suf­fered from the tragic events of Sep­tem­ber 11, 2001. While I did not wish to write a song cycle in mem­o­rium, in hind­sight it is appar­ent that the events of that day were milling about in my mind as I con­sid­ered dif­fer­ent texts.

The three songs might be con­sid­ered as a story ‚Äì a set­ting, a meet­ing, and a remem­brance.
