The Blake Songs are a group of four songs based on William Blake's poetry, for medium/high voice and cello composed during the pandemic. The songs are influenced by Vaughan Williams, although I had not heard his setting of the first song before I composed my setting of 'The Divine Image'. The other songs are 'The Little Boy Lost', 'The Little Boy found', and 'The Laughing Song'. A fifth song has been left out and stands as a solo song. The songs were composed with pen and paper. Theoretical influences are Oxford Harmony Volumes 1 and 2.
Instrumentation: Medium voice, cello.
Duration: 12 min.
Contents note: I. The Divine Image-- II. The Little Boy Lost -- III. The Little Boy Found -- IV. Laughing Song.
- In the form/style of: Song Cycles
