Regular price $28.00 Sale

Five songs for tenor and piano

Portrait of America draws together, through music, the poems of four American writers. Two of the poems have become popular and are better known than their writers, but for the other two, the writers are better known than the poems. The songs, a cycle ending with a reprise of the first song, celebrate American writing of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries while exploring the colours and moods of the tenor voice and piano. The songs were composed for American tenor, Kevin Hanrahan.  Composed 2018
