A collection of 10 short songs on children's poetry by the great English poet, Walter de la Mare. One of Juliana Hall's earliest compositions, it was written in 1989 during her year as a Guggenheim Fellow. Many of the poems come from de la Mare's wonderful poetry collection "Peacock Pie" (from which the 20 songs of Hall's tenor song collection "Peacock Pie" are also taken). These poems are, by turns, fanciful, charming, humorous, endearing, ghostly, and mysterious, all seen through a child's gentle innocence and a child's awareness of detail and changing emotion and color. Suitable for soprano or mezzo soprano, singers will enjoy the purity of expression and the directness of sentiment offered by de la Mare's richly drawn poetic characters and Hall's magical settings of these poetry classics.


The premier performance took place on May 9, 2004 at the Weisman Museum of Art, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN.  The soprano was Carrie Henneman Shaw, and the pianist was Sharon Johnson.
