This work consists of settings of 6 poems by the great American poetess Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) for medium voice and piano.
Emily Dickinson lived almost all her life in the small town of Amherst, Mass. Only a handful of her 1775 short poems were published during her lifetime. She gave them no titles, and used only the dash as punctuation. I have used the numbering employed in the Complete Poems edited by Thomas Johnson, published by Faber & Faber, London. I gratefully acknowledge the permission granted by Harvard University Press to use the poems.
Instrumentation: Medium voice, piano.
Duration: 14 min.
Contents note: I'm nobody, who are you? -- Exultation -- The soul selects -- I sing to use the waiting -- Pain -- A summer's day.
Written for: Elizabeth Campbell
- In the form/style of: Song Cycles
