Misc. Comments

The composer wrote this piece for a dear friend to sing, based on the famous e.e. cummings poem, "it may not always be so; and i say". An interesting compositional note: one measure of this piece was written per day. After approximately four months, the piece was finished.

The e.e. cummings poem was published in Eight Harvard Poets, New York. Copyright © 1917 by Laurence J. Gomme. Reprinted with permission of Liveright Publishing Corporation. Books of poems by e.e. cummings are available at http://wwnorton.com.
