One Art: the Elizabeth Bishop songs are completed!

The final installment in the song settings of Elizabeth Bishop poetry is now complete, and these new songs are ready for their debut (place and time TBC, with studio recording booked for July 2016.)

To provide some background about the poet, the composer, and the artist subject of one of the songs (Objects & Apparitions), I am sharing some videos that tell some of the story of Elizabeth Bishop (Reaching for the Moon), Joseph Cornell (Worlds in a Box), and a selection from Paula Kimper’s first opera, Patience & Sarah. Enjoy!
