Abstract

“When I Am with You, a Song Cycle for Queer Love” is a set of eight love songs composed by Matthew Shreve, featuring the poetry of Imagist poet Amy Lowell (1874-1925). Each song, a moment in time, that follows the loose narrative of a flourishing relationship, from bud to bloom — from the thrill of young love to the building of a nurturing home life. This presentation outlines compositional techniques, a short description of Amy Lowell’s life and legacy, and piano and voice performance by CWU alumna Ruth Newkirk. Winner, College of Arts and Humanities Presentation Award
