The Lover's Ghost
"for cambiata 1, cambiata 2, baritone, and piano
An original composition on a traditional and well-loved text, this is a pulsating, rhythmic piece that displays Tarney's keen sense of texture and lines which appeal to young singers. The harmonic language is folk-inspired but with exciting chromatic shifts that are part of the composer's accomplished style."
This is an imaginative and modern-sounding setting of John Masefield's popular poem (2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Masefield's death). This expressive piece ebbs and flows, and provides imitative textures and well-crafted narrative.
