A song cycle weaving together text settings and instrumental interludes into a narrative of nostalgia, emotional recollection, and a journey towards comfort. Each of the three songs (“Speech From A Novella”, “Photograph of My Mother As A Young Girl”, and “The Country Wife”) is a setting of a poem by Dana Gioia.
