You say you love
Premiere: June 17, 2009 / Church of St. John the Evangelist / Boston, Massachusetts / Jacob Cooper, baritone; Leo Eguchi, cello
Instrumentation: Mezzo-Soprano, Tenor, or Baritone & Cello
Commissioned by Jacob Cooper and premiered on the concert series of St. John the Evangelist in Boston, on the same program as my first String Quartet. The text is a series of impatient attempts to elicit an expression of love that matches the passion and abandon of the speaker.
