ISBN 9780193867185. Pieces & Studies.

For solo voice and piano Cipullo's settings of poems by Billy Collins are, at turns, darkly humorous and touching. The New York Times has called his music 'haunting' and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette called him 'an expert in writing for the voice'.

    Moderately difficult, pleasant songs. The title song is funny and light; the rest are sentimental and tart by turn.
