NewPlainTruthsmehoexThe full score was finished last week. Yesterday, so was the piano reduction, and, today, the parts. September 1st deadline, why hello and let’s do this again sometime.

Everything of the song cycle Plain Truths is now in to the musicians performing this new, expanded version November 16th at the Newburyport Chamber Music Festival: baritone Randall Scarlata, the Festival String Quartet, and The Candlelight Chorale, Jay Lane, Music Director. David Yang, the Festival’s Artistic Director, is also the Quartet’s violist.

The songs are for baritone and string quartet, with a chorus on four of the seven for this new unveiling (but optional thereafter). More about the original cycle is here (must update the program notes now), with additional information about the new songs here.

Why hello there, next deadline!
