Sidney Lanier : Evening Song

Program Notes

Sidney Lanier (1842-1881) was a poet, and also an accomplished flutist, from Georgia. His Evening Song, tells of two lovers on a beach at sunset, contrasting the changing patterns of the day with the unchanging nature of their love. My setting is unashamedly Romantic, with a more enigmatic middle section to accompany the richer, more exotic imagery of the 2nd stanza.
