A 55-minute cycle of 16 songs on texts by John Hollander, premiered by baritone David Hamilton and pianist Stuart Raleigh in thr library of Congress in November, 1985. Joseph Mclellan of the Washihington Post described the cycle as "reviving the spirit and impact of Schubert and Schumann in a modern context... The poetry and the music are both clearly work of the present, in the neo-romantic mode." An important collaboration by a distinguished poet and a distinguished composer.
