I could not prove

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.
