Sheet Music: Score
Love's blazing fire : a song cycle for mezzosoprano, baritone and piano / with music by Michael Whiticker to texts taken from the Bible.
by Michael Whiticker (1991)
Love's Blazing Fire began life as a series of 5 songs for mezzo-soprano, baritone and piano with text taken from the Bible's Song of Songs. In 1996 it became part of the one act chamber opera Love's Blazing Fire directed by John Wregg, who also wrote the libretto for the Sydney Metropolitan Opera. Love's Blazing Fire in that version does not require an accompanist as a backing track accompanies the singers.
