No. 54 of 2015’s 100 Poems.
A setting of but granted that it’s nothing paradoxically enough beyond mere personal, by E. E. Cummings.
The piece was written using a tone row which goes through 6 prime forms.
Voice 1 sings the original version of the setting.
Voice 2 sings the retrograde of Voice 1.
Voice 3 sings the inversion of Voice 1.
Voice 4 sings the retrograde inversion of Voice 1.
The dynamics for Voices 2 and 4 are inversions of the dynamics for Voices 1 and 3.
All four voices begin and end simultaneously.
