Description The poem "A Shadow" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is in public domain and is the text of this new vocal solo with piano accompaniment. It is contemporary in style, texture, and tonality. It requires an accomplished accompanist and the voice range is medium for either male or female, although it originally was written for a male singer (baritone). It is in 5/4 meter throughout with contrasting sections and a main opening theme repeated near the end. The audio clip is an MP3 (Finale) and is a fair representation of the qualities of this song. It is suitable for most classical concerts, contests, festivals, or in recital. The audio clip is a computer rendering in Finale.
