Five Shakespeare Lyrics SSA image
Shakespeare is so much the poet of all times and all climes that it occurred to me to view a sequence of song texts with a kaleidoscopic eye and create a variety of stylistic examples that grew characteristically out of each text - not to produce variety for its own sake but as a genuine collection of individual reactions. This apparent mixture of styles seems to me completely natural and acceptable, although only perhaps in film music is it normal for a composer to be able to express himself in quite such a disparate manner. Philip Lane

Five settings of Shakespeare texts for SSA choir and piano: Where the bee sucks (from "The Tempest"); Tell me, where is fancy bred? (from "The Merchant of Venice"); Blow, blow, thou winter wind (from "As You Like It"); Full fathom five (from "The Tempest"); It was a lover and his lass (from "As You Like It").
