Composition: If I can stop one heart from breaking?
Tell us about the piece you have submitted to Minnesota Varsity.
Emily Dickinson's poem, "If I can stop one heart from breaking," might appear at first glance to be expressing contentment. But the same words could just as easily be expressing urgency. I play with that idea in this quasi-rondo form song.
