In order to perform Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson by Aaron Copland, singers must prepare themselves vocally for an enormous undertaking. Aside from the vocal challenges of singing through this cycle, a comprehensive understanding of the poet Emily Dickinson and the composer Aaron Copland is necessary as well. Equally beneficial is the historical background of the work along with a detailed analysis of each of the twelve songs. And last, suggested performance practices can assist future performers in recognizing what will aid them in the process of preparing to sing this cycle, thus insuring a rewarding and satisfying music experience.
