View Full Version : Song Cycle- Looking for a third

07-08-2011, 04:01 PM
While I adore literature, my first love is classical music. I am a student of composition and am currently looking at setting some Byron poem's to music. I've set "I Saw Thee Weep" and am currently setting "She Walks In Beauty". Could anyone suggest a third poem? Preferably, it would be from Hebrew Melodies, but doesn't have to be. A good choice is a relatively short poem (20-30 lines) with a fairly even rhythm (which most Byron has, so that's not so much of a problem). I would like it to keep fairly close to the theme of love (again, not hard to find in Byron). Any suggestions?
