Program Note:
Wedding Song is a setting of verses from Christopher Marlowe’s A Passionate Shepherd To His Love. The text inspired a lyrical melody with a yearning quality, and a countermelody that gently circles and sometimes joins with the other. Originally scored for Soprano and English horn, there are versions available for alto flute, clarinet, viola or cello. A new version is now available for Mezzo and English Horn. Wedding Song has been performed in concert settings and at numerous weddings. You can read Marlowe’s poem here.
