Three Summer Songs were composed during the summer months of 2011 for conductor Angel Vázquez-Ramos. Each song uses a text by a different author and depicts one of the summer months.

Program Notes:
Three Summer Songs were composed during the summer months of 2011 for conductor Angel Vázquez-Ramos. Each song uses a text by a different author (composer herself, Emily Dickinson, Richard Le Galliene) and depicts one of the summer months: Sun and Moon – June, Answer July – July and Summer Going – August. Both the first and last songs in this cycle have some folk-music influences in its rhythmic and voice-leading organization; the contrasting middle song takes a more reciting approach to the interpretation of Emily Dickinson's poem.
