version for men’s chorus, tenor solo, piano  (1994)  6′

lyrics by Langston Hughes

published by G. Schirmer Inc.

  • commissioned by the Gateway Men’s Chorus

This is a dramatic setting of powerful poetry by Langston Hughes.  Itwas commissioned by a community Men’s chorus; I later prepared an SATB version.  It is dark and dramatic, and requires a convincing tenor soloist.
