Programme Note:
These five songs are based on poems by Lisa Jarnot, a Buffalo-born poet who lives in New York City. Having enjoyed two of the poems in the September 2005 issue of Walrus magazine, I contacted her for permission to set them to music. She responded by sending me her latest book of poems, which inspired the other three in this set. Her elliptical way of using words is very musical, both stimulating and challenging to me as a composer.
