"Since poetry is written for the ear as well as the eye, and since throughout most of human history poetry and song were considered a single genre, I’m very happy for the chance to once again collaborate with The Master Singers and their composer-in residence, Zachary J. Moore. I look forward to the opportunity to hear these words lifted from the page by such gifted musicians, The Master Singers.”
