    program notes:

    Songs from the Aviary is a song set comprised of several brief, yet distinct musical images of birds depicted in the poetry of Canadian poet, A.E. Wetherald (1857-1940).

    Wetherald’s poems seem to evoke miniature scenes in which intense, fleeting moods suddenly arise from a brief shared moment she may have had with a particular bird. These intense, short bursts of character and personality are what I tried to highlight when creating these six songs.
