Love Song, for Oboe and English Horn, is an instrumental version of Come Live with Me.. It was commissioned by Sarah Davol for Double Entendre’s new CD Double Take, American Reed on the Albany label, released in 2014. This lyrical piece, with lines that circle around each other and merge in a beautiful partnership, was inspired by my setting of Christopher Marlowe’s poem The Passionate Shepherd To His Love. I have created several additional versions of Love Song. These include Oboe and Viola, for The San Marco Chamber Music Society; Alto Flute and Cello, for the Charlottesville-based duo, Terra Voce, Soprano and Alto Sax for the Decho Ensemble, as well as versions for oboe and clarinet and for violin and cello.
