Program Notes / Description

Dr. Eric Hoy Tucker approached me about writing this set after hearing my work on the cycle Songs for the Lonely Heart. The idea for this setting was to write a song cycle based on southern Civil War poetry, from the soldier perspective. The voice and the piano work quite nicely ranging from calm, soothing melodies, to harsh, dramatic, pointed emotions in the piano. The pieces performed together total about 25 minutes.
