When soprano Judy Bohlen asked me to write some songs based on the light verse of American poet Richard Armour, I couldn’t refuse. Not only because Judy is a dear friend, but also because these little poems are so charming, witty, and funny.
Richard Armour calls his poems, “light verse.” In reading, and laughing, through many of these, we selected seven that we thought would make a good set of songs for soprano, clarinet and piano. Richard Armour’s son, Geoffery Armour, gave his blessing on the project.
In the recordings below Judy Bohlen is joined by Susan Jones (www.wordsworthverse.com), clarinet, and Sandy Bron, piano.
