Guggenheim Commissions

(Stephen Flaherty)

These two songs were commissioned as part of the Guggenheim Museum’s “Works and Process” series.  Both premiered at the museum in New York City.

“A Collegelands Catechism” (2005) is set to the poetry of Paul Muldoon. “Veteran’s Cemetery” (2008) is set to the poetry of Dana Gioia.

A complete audio recording of “Veteran’s Cemetery” was featured in the Fall 2008 issue of “The Hudson Review.”
