The words for these songs are taken from “Leaves of Grass”, the collected edition of Walt Whitman’s poetry. The songs are scored for baritone & orchestra, and a complete performance would take a little over an hour.

The songs are arranged in four sections, three of them beginning with an instrumental introduction. The first section, based on extracts from the long poem “Song of Myself”, begins instead with this recitative which refers to several ideas and concepts that will come back in later songs.
