The little toil of Love (Emily Dickinson)

Sincere thanks to Erin MacAfee and Ellen Tsai for joining me in making this recording. For song description and sheet music, see below.

Description: Here is “The little toil of Love,” my song based on a remarkable poem by Emily Dickinson (more commonly known as “I had no time to Hate”). I have created a 6-part SSATBB arrangement, with three pairs of voices (SS, AT and BB) that would ideally be placed in separate groupings on stage. I’ve dedicated this song to my two dear grandmothers: Mary and Gladys.
