This collection of songs (including the Fantasy #1 for solo lute which can be played as a prelude) celebrates the poetry and lives of unknown poets [including myself]. I am always attracted to the words of people I know perhaps more so than the eloquence of the “greats.” This poetry was written by various LiveOak voice workshop participants over the course of one weekend. The “assignment” was to write a short poem without “thinking.” See what is around and in front of you without judgment, without filters. The results were unexpected and spectacular. After a short Song Without Words, these were my first songs and they evolve from a very Renaissance style polyphony to modern harmonies and textures.
