Program Notes

Witty and whimsical, this song cycle is comprised of six short pieces, with clever, playful texts by 19th century American poet Louisa May Alcott. From the light, dance-like opening to the soft, dreamy lullaby at the close, these songs are organized to depict a carefree summer day. The poems are Lily-Bell and Thistledown Song, Hello! Hello!, Dear Grif, Here's a Nut, Don't Drive Me Away, and Lullaby.
