The Road Not Taken


Z. Randall Stroope connects: through his teaching, his thoughtful compositions, and the poetry he chooses for his compositions. In his poem The Road Not Taken, Robert Frost connects to the core of the human spirit in just a few stanzas using the analogy of a fork in a road. Stroope employs both lush harmonies with simplistic melodic lines, all of which work beautifully to convey Frost's intent that there is an inner desire to feel empowered and to create one's own destiny by taking the road "less traveled by", and, in doing so, ultimately making a difference. For SATB Voices, Piano, and Cello.
