The setting for soprano voice, by one of America's most respected composers, of poems that celebrate the love of the beautiful mortal Radha for the god Krishna. (English trans. of the original Bengali texts by Edward C. Dimock, Jr. and Denise Levertov.) " Nowhere in poetry," writes the composer, "have I found a more beautiful union of purity and sensuality or a more immediate projection of the ecstasy and joys, anguish and pain of human love..." For colleges, conservatories, studios, amateur& professional performers. Difficult.
