A River of Honey

(2003)

A River of Honey is a song cycle by Simon Sargon setting the poetry of William Blake, Amy Lowell, and Denise Levertov. The song cycle is composed for soprano, flute, and piano.


Sargon writes of the cycle:


"In the first [song], 'Sound the Flute,' the joyful runs of the flute herald the Spring and nature's beauties. In 'Music,' the poet listens to her neighbor practicing the flute. Although not attracted to him, when she hears the music she fantasizes about a handsome young man and falls asleep dreaming of him. In the last song, the outpouring of the flute's sound is like a river of honey, intoxicating the listener with its sweetness. Perfect for variety in a flute or voice recital."


Sheet music for Mr. Sargon's songs is available directly through the composer by contacting the following address: [email protected].
