Woodlands I Wander

Alto vocalist and piano musical setting of excerpts from the Frances Sargent Osgood poem “On a Landscape by Doughty”. Originally commissioned by the Friends of Mount Auburn as part of Mary’s two-year composer residency at Mount Auburn Cemetery.

The key of Db (pale/sparkling yellow, pale purple, vibrant red) was selected to highlight the “crimson and gold” landscape of the poem (as well as Mount Auburn, which you can see in the beautiful “Woodlands I Wander” music video slideshow created by Jennifer Johnston below!).

VOCAL RANGE: Ab3-Bb4 [Alto]
