THREE SHAKESPEARE SONGS
by Gabriel Jackson

for SATB with divisions, unaccompanied

This setting of texts from Cymbeline and The Merchant of Venice, and Sonnet 98, is characterised by inventive textures and vibrant word-setting. The harmonic language is for the most part diatonic, but never plain, and there are some pungent dissonances, as the contrasts between and within the texts are laid bare in music of evocative power.
