Songs of Love and Remembrance is a set of four songs for soprano or tenor, violin, and harpsichord or piano on texts by Moore, Millay and Yeats. This composition earned Third Prize in the chamber music category of the 2012 Aliénor International Harpsichord Composition Competition. Composed for Bourbon Baroque (Meagan Brus, soprano; Nicolas Fortin, violin; John Austin Clark, harpsichord), that group gave the world premiere of this work at the finals of the competition 23 March 2012 at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
This work was performed by Aliénor on February 5, 2014 at Duke University as a part of the HIP Festival. Featuring Penelope Jensen, soprano; Elaine Funaro,
harpsichord; and John Pruett, baroque violin, the Songs were called one of
the “concert’s jewels” in this review of the event.
