Three Amy Levy Songs

Text by Amy Levy (1861–1889)

voice (A3–E5), piano | $20.00

I feel such a connection to Levy's writing. These poems are pure and sublunary—a dinner party, a rest taken on a grassy hill, a game of tennis with friends—but have an almost fantastical feeling to them. I was immediately drawn to a connecting theme of queer mundanity, and I wanted to channel the excitement and mixed feelings that love can bring.
