silent noon
ralph vaughan williams/ Dante Gabriel Rossetti
char: the most catchy song, the one that Katie Faris. It has a traveling music, steady tempo and becomes more dramatic in the middle. Digs into the word”music/clasp/dower/hour/INARTICULATE” but not as Purcell’s song. Ring a round the rosy music. Moderate momentum. Not too rangy. Maintains calm.

Loveliest of tree
butteworth/ a e housman
char: starts off high. starts off with rubato rhythm. delicate.

The easter tree is personified like a lovely woman or livelihood with its typical scene/beginning but short-lived for the season. life is limited and so I will find the beauty of things no matter the time or day.

Is my team ploughing?
-the friend and the dead friend catch up on how things are going. the living man comforts the dead by letting them that all is fine and that they can rest in peace. the dead prods with deeper and deeper questions until the person narrates that he is the lover of the newfound “widow” of the dead. Using the theme of the beauty of the natural world, the poet is expressing the view that we should seize every opportunity to experience life in all its beauty. Because of its lighthearted tone (especially notable because of the riddle-like second stanza), this is an optimistic poem despite a reference to the shortness of man’s tenure in the world. The poem’s briefness, short lines, and simplicity remind us that life is short; they urge us to speed.
Let the florid music praise
Benjfaamin Britten/ Wystan Hugh Auden

char: starts like fanfare, allows for voice to go acapella like a solo trumpet. very straight tone, replicating piano part. then it ushers into the imagery filled verbs with very lyrical lines of the second section with slow,behind the beat movement piano which may end with solo repsonse of a line. However, the line leaves no breath with long solo lines. with resolutions to lean into.

about: it begins with praise to God, and the secondly concludes with pity for those who never get always seem to suffer and how they will eventually be on top. the breaking before his look may relate to britten’s lover.

as it is plenty

char: cheerful, snappy, purposefull dissonance, swift,
about: reflection of Auden’s distaste for the bourgeoisie, the biting satire of which Britten dresses up in a distorted pastiche of pre-war dance music———

about: talks about family giving thanks to God. However everything is not what it seems and everyone seems to pokes fun at praising despite all the fake smiles and falseness.

at day close in november
Britten/Thomas Hardy
char:begins with glissando, jazz harmony moments. occasional melisma like purcell. alternates from dissonant, diminished chords with no connected motion except with compound meter change. uncomfortable unsettling of the harmony with thick 9th harmonies. forte dynamic as soon as voice enters. glissando could sound like a growing tree.
2nd phrasing has soaring tenor melody. sounds like melancholy ring a round the rosey.
about: this speaks about the overgrown nature of thr ee. the pine trees now blacken the sky,all things are dark and dusk under the canopy. the children have no idea when it was created and to them it has always been there.
the choirmaster’s burial.
britten/thomas hardy
char: . hymn-like beginning. large recit part. nursery rhyme sound base don conjunct meody. sounds like tenderland moment turns in the melody with purcell melisma. 3 notequick rhythms that would move to other. then insistent pulsing. lack of piano is used for suspense. the higher timbre sounded like lute .
about: the choir dir. asked about the choir singing a certain song. There was dispute over the choice where it was preferred that there was no tune, which was sung when he was buried. the dead man didn’t expect this to happen. However, to the surprise of the vicar, it was a possibly imagined group around him singing as a group of angels which has now been a story told over and over again.
tom sails away
charles ives/ives.

char:: the millman music seems to arry more speedy momentum until the one note trail before alking of tom’s journey very high one voice starts off, without much sense of meter, jus tricklign like he seeping of amemory. Chromaticism is used for nostalgia/dreamy like state same harmony choices. The voice leads, the piano trails in, there is no definite choice. scenes from my child hood repeats. over there trails off like an echo.
about: he has a flashback as he’s in the backyard, he sees the garden, he imagines the town whistle, the train for th emilk, daddy, the millworker returning(americna scene) just like his childhood was , but since tom left for war, these memories are becoming more distant.

David Chatterton, “Devon Scene” (1942)

It has been suggested that the trees referred to in the poem are the trees that Hardy planted around Max Gate, the house that he built at Dorchester in Dorset. When Hardy and his first wife Emma moved into the house, the land surrounding it was mostly bare of trees. J. O. Bailey, The Poetry of Thomas Hardy: A Handbook and Commentary (University of North Carolina Press 1970), page 291.

According to The Early Life of Thomas Hardy (the authorship of which was credited to Hardy’s second wife Florence, but which was in fact mostly written by Hardy): “Some two or three thousand small trees, mostly Austrian pines, were planted around the house by Hardy himself, and in later years these grew so thickly that the house was almost entirely screened from the road, and finally appeared, in summer, as if at the bottom of a dark green well of trees.”

there came a wind like bugle
copland/dickinson. char: char: has energy leaps at the beginning of phrases. anxiousness by trilling of voice and short rests. huge leaps to represent the path of the wind, sudden changes of music, allows. the piano’s rhythm seems to trip to the halt and ending phrases on 2nds. one note accompaniment when alone. bugle like at the beginning about: the wind blew past a loud musicla instrument. shelter was taken. it says its path was through trees/fences/ rivers/. The irony of such a fierce wind, and the world still remains in one piece is painted here. “There came a wind like a bugle” is a poem by Emily Dickinson, in which she describes the menacing approach and intensity of a storm. Using the example of the storm, she makes this point: no matter what Nature throws at us, the world still endures. So despite the catastrophe we are left with a sense of wonder.
Going to heaven

char: as the music sustans, the accompaniment scurries quickly under her. catchy going to heaven rhythmic motive. Sounds like Cinderella music melody with fanfare trumpets leading off. acapella when it talks bout stopping the breath. It ascends and flies and when the melody rests, it seems to stay practically on earth.

about: she speaks how such act of “goign to heaven” is full of so much hype where they believe they will be wearing a crown, a robe without any definite proof. She says she’s happy that the current lost ones believe it, but she doesnt. shows how dickinson didn’t believe in a heaven.

st. ita’s vision.
barber/irish monks

char: running melody up the scale, has compound meter when talking about the baby, as if rocking him. and holds midrange notes. very homophonic piano piece, no true florid sections pretty full pino texture, mode change chords, sounds like coming up and down the hills. on high breast like o quand…

the Heavenly Banquet
barber/irish monks
char: homophonic evenly pased of the piano rhtyhm until the final inclusion of the bass. it seems to joyous playfulness of all the char’s state of mind. faster than st. ita’s vision. Sounds like a girl skipping. syncopation, and 2-3 lines layering in the chase. I would like beginning of phrases… uses some outlines of the triads.

about: it’s about the monk inviting everyone to their home which would include heaven’s peeps jesus, 3 mary’s,the three kings all just having a grand ol’ time with beer, and eating together.

char: first two chords. the motive of notes repeat and matches voice to a “T”. the music seems to giggle with dissonanct chords. starts off like a hymn, then turns around like a medium seance music. responses are choppy and highly dissonant. super short.The meandering vocal line matches the suspicion.
about: gossiping about edan messing around and having company to bed.
the desire for hermitage
char: sounds like desert music, voice comes in on the same tone. All of the melody travels up and down but returns and maintains same note. ^3 is the goal throughout. with melody seems to have continual sense of longin with a climax that still is followed by movement in the left hand. continual alternation that sounds like a compound melody and the bell toll before the neotonal center is lowered. the repeated note can represent the return to sameness/solitude.

about: A monk wishes to be alone,not being bothered, singing to God by yourself, just eating bread/water, goodness comes, and the monk believes that since they came here alone, they shall leave just the same.

Repeated phrases of the vocal line. simple accompaniment. disjunct movement. with M3 being intoned. piano is mostly homophonic withg the voice.
about: I tell someone that if they would be coming in the next season(fall) I would be done with summer, if a year,forget about all these darn months, if centuries, I’d try to rush time in any case it was. But since I don’t know when I’ll see you again, it ikills.

This is a poem about love, time and separation. It is addressed to and is about someone who is away. The usual assumption is that the speaker is a woman, because of the domestic metaphors (the housewife and the fly, the balls of yarn), because the writer was a woman, and, I think, because it is traditionally women who wait.
