Life and Love

(3 Emily Dickinson Settings)

Part Number






Lyrics By

Emily Dickinson

Music By

Patti Drennan

This set of songs incorporate three of Dickinson's most popular texts, contrasting stylistically from a slow, emotional setting to a light and lilting feel, then back to a fuller and more passionate setting. Feel free to sing #1 and #3 without a strict tempo and with full use of dynamics, rubato and in a romantic style.  The second song is playful and dancelike and serves as a “palate-cleanser” from the two serious songs.  

It is best to perform the 3 songs as a collection rather than individually.
