Three words : three songs to poems by Judith Wright, for baritone and piano / music by Geoffrey Allen ; words by Judith Wright.

These songs are settings of the first three of five poems by
Judith Wright with the overall title "Some Words". I therefore
decided to change the title.
The last two poems of the complete set are much longer than the first three and I felt, from the point of view of the songwriter, that there would be an imbalance, musically, if I set all five. Additionally I felt that the the longer poems lack the sharpness, the exclamatory character, of the first three which I have tried to match with my settings.
Instrumentation: Baritone, piano.
Contents note: 1. Unless -- 2. Therefore -- 3. Enough.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Michael Lampard
