Product Description

A cappella SATB choir/quartet; ca. 9 min.

The composer writes: A few years before I composed these settings by three American poets, I composed my Four Elizabethan Songs About Love (2016-2018). The texts Ive used in Three American Poems About Love (2020) bring us forward in time about three centuries, and transpose the location from England to the USA. However, like the poems in the Elizabethan set, the texts in my American set are not all conventional love songs. The first, Invitation to Love (by Paul Laurence Dunbar) is a glowing reflection on the nature of love itself, rather than an expression of love directed towards a specific other. The second, Spring Night (by Sara Teasdale) is a wistful reflection on lovelessness, despite the consolations of beauty. Only the third, Our Love (by James Russell Lowell) is a love song in the conventional sense: a profession of enduring love between two people.
