Scope and arrangement
The Katherine Ruth Heyman Songs collection represents a significant part of the composer's output. They range from the 1980s while she was still learning her craft, to a decade before her death, with the bulk falling around the time of her concert tours. The varied selection of text probably reflects her tours to various foreign cities, as it represents her level of intellectual sophistication. Included is a song with a text by her friend Ezra Pound.
Songs are arranged alphabetically by title.
