Three James Tate Songs

(2007)

Three James Tate Songs is a song cycle by David Leisner.


"Written for Patrick Mason, baritone, and David Starobin, guitar, these are settings of texts by one of the great living American poets, James Tate, whose surrealistic work can be hilarious or frightening or both at the same time. The music is repetitive, obsessive, hypnotic. Guitar part of medium difficulty."
