Frank DeWald / Edna St. Vincent Millay
The sense of youthful, innocent longing so beautifully expressed in the poem of this Edna St. Vincent Millay text is beautifully mirrored in the large melodic leaps and occasional chromaticism of this setting. Simple, almost childlike at the beginning, the piece develops into a rich, mature sound at the climax, and returns to its simpler roots toward the end. Duration: ca. 3:05.
