Journey of Seasons is a thirty-minute song cycle for vocal quartet, clarinet and piano on the poetry of May Sarton. A very creative fertile writer, May Sarton wrote numerous novels and book of poetry. She began writing in her teenage years and worked well into her 80’s. Journey of Seasons explores many facets of the human experience. These songs address relationships with her mother, her lovers, ageing and most importantly with herself through the metaphor of nature and the garden.
