1997 | soprano/piano
Poem by Emily Dickinson
Song 3 of Between the Bliss and Me
Some newer editions may already have these corrections.
- The spacing in the piano part is a little off. For example, the ties in m. 2 and m. 3 in the right hand, between beats 2 and 3, are a little funny looking. This will be fixed in the new printed copy.
- For the last voice note, one can sing a low D instead if preferred.
- This song sounds the best in the original key.
- in some early editions, "aah" was used for the final lyrics. Now the end has a repetition of the phrase "proves that outgrown, outgrown, I see." My thanks to soprano Martha Ellison for this suggestion.
