SKU: [1704B]

This is the voice and piano version of the song cycle for voice and orchestra “Emily’s Bees and Bells”. It consists of eight brief poems by the celebrated American poet Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886) that mention bees or bells. The music supports Dickinson’s precise writing with bee-like buzzings, chimes and melodies reminiscent of her time. The moods are varied. One poem has two different settings and another, the final one, incorporates two versions by the poet. The poetry is used with the permission of Harvard University Press. Recordings and broadcasts are not permitted without permission from the composer.

The version for voice and orchestra is available at [1704A].
