Dark, the Light, The

By Diana Blom

Regular price $28.00 Sale

Low voice and piano  c.11'00
A long song and short story.  Helen Garner is a very fine and evocative Australian short story writer and ‘The Dark, the Light’, from Postcards from Surfers (Penguin 1985).  Almost a music theatre work in miniature because of the different musical styles matching different text moods, the song can be sung by memory, but also with the score held as if reading the story to an audience.   Composed 1997

Fair Maid of the Mill, The (Medium)

By Bruce Daniel

Regular price $60.00 Sale

Song cycle for medium voice and piano. Die Schöne Müllerin D.795
Original German text by Wilhelm Müller. It is a story that takes its audience on a journey that is dramatic as well as musical. The songs come fully alive only as the story reveals itself to the audience in real time, as the composer intended. It is hoped that this edition may offer English-speaking singers and audiences the immediate experience that German-speakers take for granted.
The edition is a translation not of poems but of song lyrics. There have been many such attempts in the past but I have yet to see one which comes anywhere near a credible or convincing realisation of Müller’s poetry as it appears in the context of Schubert’s music. (David Miller, pianist)
Edited 2018 by Bruce Daniel

The songs were composed for American tenor, Kevin Hanrahan.  Composed 2018
