From the composer:

These short songs were written for the Radcliffe Choral Society and conductor Beverly Taylor.  The texts are from James Joyce’s delectable Chamber Music poems.  Set for SSAA choir.

I. A Stranger
Because your voice was at my side
I gave him pain,
Because within my hand I held
Your hand again.There is no word nor any sign
Can make amend —
He is a stranger to me now
Who was my friend.
II. The Way of Memories
Rain has fallen all the day.
O come among the laden trees:
The leaves lie thick upon the way
Of memories.Staying a little by the way
Of memories shall we depart.
Come, my beloved, where I may
Speak to your heart.


Premiere: First performed by The Radcliffe Choral Society, Beverly Taylor, conducting.
