Programme Note

This poem by John Keats has been set into a cycle of eight songs for baritone and piano which was commissioned by Suzie Kovner for her husband Bruce in commemoration of his 65th birthday.

My heart aches
O, for a draught
Fade far away
Away! away!
I cannot see what flowers
Darkling I listen
Thou wast not born for death
