“I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you….You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever.” So begins Captain Wentworth’s declaration of love to Anne Elliot in Jane Austen’s masterful Persuasion, brought vividly to life in this setting for soprano and piano by Stacy Garrop. YOU PIERCE MY SOUL recalls conventions of 19th-century lieder, reimagined with Garrop’s inimitable dramatic style and spectacular colors.
