Three William Blake Songs for Soprano and Piano, Opus 2, were my first attempt at composing “classical” songs for voice and piano. Having grown up listening to far more pop music than classical, these songs tend to have a Pop, Folk and even Broadway influence – wrapped in the cloak of Classical Music. These simple songs are to be sung with minimal vibrato and ask for a pure, clean tone.
I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.
And I watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.
And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright.
And my foe beheld it shine.
And he knew that it was mine,
And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.
