Meanwhile, here are four “sneak peeks”, the first of Robert Browning’s “Meeting at Night”, set to music by Michael Kurek, sung here by Tyler Evick as “Henry”, and second, the song “To Live in a Dream” sung here by Crystal Kurek and Leslie Eiler Thompson as “Elizabeth Barrett” and “Sarah” at New York’s National Arts Club for the New York Browning Society on Jan. 17, 2019. The third is a solo by Sarah (Leslie) called “Let’s Work Something Out”, and the fourth is a duet by Sarah and Henry called “Rare Books and Tea” (in which they tease each other about her interest in rare books and tea and his interest in the history of architecture).

Thanks to my friend Jon O’Hara of Mike Post Productions in Hollywood for the lovely digital sound design and cellist Mattie Brister for recording the cello solo in Nashville.”
