Product details

Trois Leçons was composed in 1972 for Australian soprano Marilyn Richardson and harpsichordist Robert Goode. The three songs received their premier performance at the Musica Viva Australia festival in Geelong, Victoria, in 1974 and subsequently they were included in the touring program of the Consort of Sydney and performed many times in Australia and Europe.
The words are taken from the arcys life of mehitabel poems of Don Marquis and are about an insect's view of the world. Archy is a small cockroach who sits at the typewriter by night, punching out his thoughts with some difficulty. He is not strong enough to do capitals or punctuation. Mehitabel is his friend, the cat.
The words of these poems appealed to me immensely because of their wit, their unique view of life on this earth and because of their universal nature. They are words which cause one to think differently about life in general. I had the interesting task of trying to interpret these novel ideas in music. Whatever the result, I had great fun writing the songs.
