Fresh Patterns

2003 | 2 sopranos and piano

Texts from Emily Dickinson and Annie Finch.

Song 3 of Fresh Patterns

Commissioned by Steven Jordheim for Alisa Jordheim.

Errata

Some newer editions may already have these corrections.

  • m. 113: top soprano line should be forte by the word “apart.” Similarly, bottom vocal line should be forte by the word “today” in m. 116.

TEMPO CHANGE:

Upon revisiting this song, I found that the quarter=176 marking in m. 68 is too fast. I would suggest quarter =144, and then adjust following markings down accordingly.
