Another Sleep

Nineteen Songs for Medium Voice and Piano

Series: Boosey & Hawkes Voice Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Format: Softcover Composer: Ned Rorem

This moving group of songs set to 14 writers is a memorial to the composer's long-time companion. In the composer's words: The overall theme stresses nostalgia and loss, but also frustration and anger, and finally renewal, albeit renewal through defiance of death. Premiered at Alice Tully Hall in 2002 by baritone Kurt Ollmann and pianist Scott Dunn.
