I have adopted a simple approach for my arias…diatonic melodies sung by fantastic Sopranos. Thus far, I have composed over 20 arias, using lyrics from Percy Shelley, Emily Dickinson, Max Erhmann and the Great Spirit Prayer. Nearly all of these pieces are dedications to family and close friends.
I have fortunate to be granted such wonderful family and friends, thus I can only express my gratitude via my music.
Why Percy Shelley? Well read the words from his beautiful poem Love’s Philosophy and ask….can anyone more beautiful words than this to describe true love…
