The fascinating Amy Lowell poem opens “’Tis you that are the music, not your song.” The composer has beautifully captured the drama of the text as it glorifies music of the spirit, the earth, the ocean, “one music with a thousand cadences.” A virtuoso flute adds vibrant color to this special piece.

'Tis you that are the music, not your song.
The song is but a door which, opening wide,
Lets forth the pent?up melody inside,
Your spirit's harmony, which clear and strong
Sings but of you. Throughout your whole life long
Your songs, your thoughts, your doings, each divide
This perfect beauty; waves within a tide,
Or single notes amid a glorious throng.
The song of earth has many different chords;
Ocean has many moods and many tones
Yet always ocean. In the damp Spring woods
The painted trillium smiles, while crisp pine cones
Autumn alone can ripen. So is this
One music with a thousand cadences.

Amy Lowell
