Betty Roe: Seven Songs (Soprano)

Books | Piano, Soprano

Publisher: Thames Publishing
Composer: Betty Roe
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
The songs in this collection include the modern art song Legend of Rosemary (verse by Reginald Arkell), a bluesy Stop All The Clocks (W H Auden) , the droll dizziness of desire The Bakery (13th Korean courtesan), creepy evocation of mother’s love juxtaposed with evil using three keys simultaneously in Infant Song (Charles Causley) and the poignant My Boy Jack, haunting, modal Harp Song of the Dane Women, and a contemplation of wrongdoing using constantly shifting key and time signatures in Gertrude’s Prayer (all Rudyard Kipling).Contemporary English composer, singer and Vocal coach Betty Roe is best known for her church and Choral music, revue songs, music for schools and solo songs like these. She has a particular affinity for setting poetry imaginatively and sensitively.
