love songs

SATB, SSA or TTB a cappella  |  3 min.  |  Graphite   |   Text by Samuel Daniel

Love is a Sickness takes nonsense words already in Samuel Daniel's text and adds scat syllables, creating a jazzy, swinging accompaniment to the soprano melody: "More we enjoy it, more it dies; If not enjoyed, it sighing cries, Heigh ho!"

SATB & chamber ensemble  |  15 min.  |  Graphite   |   Text by Dale Trumbore

A meditation on making the decision to marry. "When I was small, unable to sleep,
and imagining, somewhere, a love I hadn't met, imagining that love
awake, imagining that love imagining me too, I am certain that person was you."


SATB a cappella  |  3 min.  |  Boosey & Hawkes  |  Text by Annie Finch

Annie Finch's poem is a love song describing the most beautiful and intimate images of love - “warm hands,” “gentlest sounds, touches and hours.” The text is set apart and isolated in sound until halfway through the piece when the voices finally merge together, finally united.
