Product Description

Four movements; a cappella SATB choir or quartet; ca. 9 min.

The composer writes: I almost titled this work Four Elizabethan Love Songs. However, while such a title might be appropriate for a group of songs about the joys of loving relationships, the texts I have chosen do not all fit that mould. Of the four, only Christopher Marlowes seductive The Passionate Shepherd to His Love and Shakespeares wise and insightful Sonnet 116 address requited love. On the other hand, John Donnes The Message is a hate-song, an angry poem about love gone wrong, bursting with bitter recriminations. And Elizabeth Is When I Was Fair and Young, is wistful and full of regret: the Queen realizes that her own youthful pride has obstructed her opportunities for happiness. Together, these poems offer four dramatically contrasting views about love.
