Program Notes / Description

For a long time now, I have loved these three poems. I finally decided to set them together this year in a short cycle. For me, the music truly came from the text. I did not want the music to appear to be more important than the lyrics, rather the lyrics more important than the music. These th ree poems are very story-like in their application which made it very easy to highlight the text. What I have created is a mere accompaniment to the brilliant texts of Longfellow. I hope you enjoy this cycle, I have truly enjoyed writing it!
