Collected Villanelles

(Various poets)

Year: 2018

Instrumentation: a cappella voices

Duration: 16 minutes

Program Notes

Having read Theodore Roethke’s “The Waking” and deciding to set it to music, led me to the discovery that many other poets have written using the same ‘villanelle’ form. Over a few weeks, I wrote three more, setting villanelles by Harvey Stanbrough, Sylvia Plath and Edward Arlington Robinson. These are now collected in one score.
