I’m excited to share my latest song cycle - Six Little Songs! These six songs are settings of short, whimsical poems written by my wife, Ashley. Listen to four of the songs below, and click here to view the score and read more about the work.
The Man in the Moon - a poem about childhood memories and the mystery of a moonlit night.
Orchard - a reflective poem about our visit to a small, family-owned apple orchard in Central Massachusetts one Sunday afternoon in early fall. It was a quiet, grey day, and the owners invited us to wander through the orchard as long as we liked.
The Letters - a poem about the letters Steve and I wrote to each other the summer after we first met, when we were living on opposite sides of the country.
Academy Hill - a poem about a quiet hilltop park in the small Massachusetts town where we lived just after graduate school. (The place where Steve proposed.)
