Composed by William Sydeman. Vocal Solo. Secular, 20th Century. Published by E.C. Schirmer Publishing (EC.136).

Item Number: EC.136

English. Text: Emily Dickinson.

Sydeman has been praised for using "a whole battery of far-out techniques" with "an uncanny ability to throw in the whole avant-garde machinery... as if it were the simplest, most normal way of making music..." by The New York Times. Since Emily Dickinson did not title her poems, the titles are not listed in the music. However, today, the poems are referenced by their first line. Contents: I heard a fly buzz - when I died I taste a liquor never brewed Hope is a thing with feathers.
