CLASSICAL: Art songs, CLASSICAL: Vocal Music

Here are eight songs by diverse poets. Among them are Edward Learâs whimsical yet touching nonsense-romance, âThe Owl and the Pussy-Cat;â Conrad Aikenâs plaintive remembrance of a life partner, âMusic I Heard with You;â and Daniel Ladinskyâs exuberant âThere Is a Wonderful Game,â an invitation to realize the transcendent unity of all mankind.

This cycle includes âRecuerdoâ, one of Millayâs most familiar poems, in which the poet recalls a happy night traveling back and forth on the Staten Island Ferry, and âAfternoon on a Hillâ, a song of youthful delight in nature.

This is a portion of the Mass, in Latin. Composed in five sections, the short text becomes a full canvas of personal, spiritual feeling: from rapturous praise, to quiet and steadfast faith, to a sense of urgent pleading that we, on earth, become aware of Godâs glorious presence.

TOM HERMANâS compositions have been performed both in the United States and Canada as well as in Europe. He has written art songs, chamber music, and music theater pieces for which he served both as composer and lyricist. He has received various grants for composition, including a National Endowment Fellowship Award for his theater piece âObjets trouvés.â Mr. Herman has taught at Fordham University and Sarah Lawrence College.

She appeared in the Kennedy Center production of Stephen Sondheimâs âPassion,â and her other theatrical credits include roles in âMary Poppins,â âNine,â âThe Sound of Music,â â Show Boat,â âThe Secret Garden,â and âThe Phantom of the Opera.â She performed in the New York City Opera production of âBrigadoonâ and has appeared with many orchestras, including the New Jersey and St. Louis Symphonies, the Hollywood Bowl, and the Boston Pops.
