To Music

Word painting of a raw, intense poem by Paul Cummings is the essence of this homage to the miracle of music, which begins: Your harmony invades my being; / my body is captured by the embrace / of a melody that leads me out of dark places.

 

Te cubrirĂ¡

A flowing Spanish setting from Psalm 90 (91): The Lord will overshadow you with his pinions, and you will find refuge under his wings. His faithfulness will encompass you with a shield.

 

I Think of Thee

This marvelous love poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning is dynamically dressed with a rich palette of word painting.
