Three Song Cycles by Ben Moore

…an American songwriter with a knack for matching texts to lyrically generous, harmonically rich music.” — New York Times

Ben Moore is a particularly eloquent exponent of the art song, noted for the broad and eclectic variety of his thematic applications and poetic sources. Here, in his first album for Delos, he offers three diverse and richly expressive song cycles – hitherto unrecorded – that explore the theme of longing for freedom in diverse ways. Tenor Paul Appleby, soprano Susanna Phillips and baritone Brett Polegato deliver lovely singing and sensitive interpretations, supported to perfection by pianist Brian Zeger.

Dear Theo, the title set, is based upon the letters of legendary artist Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theo. So Free am I sets poetry by women from across millennia, expressing their longing to be free of the ages-old societal discrimination they have suffered. Ode to a Nightingale sets John Keats’ famous poem, with a separate song devoted to each stanza.
