This group was commissioned by the soprano, Donna Zapola-Connolly. The group lasts approximately 14 minutes but each piece is extractable on its own. An excellent pianist is required for these virtuoso accompaniments.
“One of Hennessy’s great strengths as a song composer is his understanding both of word stressing and the inner rhythms of their meaning... The vocal line of these songs is always melodic and grateful to sing…. This cycle would be a wonderful centerpiece for a graduate level or professional recital sung by a soprano with a warm and ample sound."
