Two Shakespearean Songs

| /
Ned Rorem
Ned Rorem has been described as “The world's best composer of art songs,” and these two contrasting and compelling works for chorus affirm this description. “Dirge” poignantly expresses the pain of unquiet love, while “Live with Me,” creates a somewhat playful mood. In 12/8, the vocals dance above the flowing sixteenth note arpeggios in the piano. Duration: ca. 3:30.
