One of the true masters of American art song, Ned Rorem has set this Edna St. Vincent Millay text for unison voices and piano. The effect of a unison line against Rorem's inventive harmonies on the piano emphasizes the beauty of the young voice. Simple to the eye, complex and engaging to the ear. Duration: ca. 8:00.
