Ten Poems of James Joyce
During the winter and spring of 2019, I composed a cycle of ten art songs on poems by James Joyce. From the beginning, I intended this cycle be accessible to a wide range of professional singers and serious voice students. So, I wrote two versions of each piece concurrently—one for high voice (soprano or tenor) and one for medium voice (mezzo-soprano or baritone).
The result is my Ten Poems of James Joyce. In September 2019, I went back to the recording studio with soprano Danielle Talamantes, bass-baritone Kerry Wilkerson, producer Erica Brenner and engineer Daniel Shores to record the entire cycle. They will be featured in a new album which will be announced sometime later in 2020.
I later arranged Night Piece, Strings in the Earth and Air and Bahnhofstrasse for SATB chorus with high voice solo and piano accompaniment for the Washington Master Chorale's 10th Anniversary Season opening concert. My Three Choral Songs on James Joyce premiered on October 27, 2019 at the Church of the Epiphany in Washington, D.C. under the direction of Maestro Thomas Colohan, artistic director of the Chorale.
