David Leisner (composer), Dickinson (lyricist), Bronte (lyricist), Ely (lyricist), et al.


  • High Voice
  • Piano


First known to the music world as a guitar recitalist, David Leisner turned to composing his own guitar repertoire, and soon expanded his work to create a rich catalog in the grand tradition of art songs for voice with guitar. Much beloved by singers for his poignant lyricism and powerful cultivation of meaningful texts, Leisner has also composed a wealth of art songs for voice with piano. The present collection is a selection of six songs from existing cycles for high voice, on texts by Emily Dickinson, Emily Brontë, Elissa Ely, Kenneth Patchen, and Wendell Berry.
