composer’s note:

candle-in-the-darkness“To Wander In the Dark” was the first song cycle for voice and piano that I ever wrote, on a random collection of poems I liked at the time. I wrote these songs in an independent study course I took with a poet, not a musician, and learned quite a lot from that poet’s reaction to my text settings. It was not completely successful as a song cycle, but looking back at these art songs, it’s fun to see all the ideas that would later become my songwriting style.
