Sylvia  [2'17] English

Introduction
Ohio-born Oley Speaks is best remembered for his setting of Rudyard Kipling’s On the Road to Mandalay. No two songs from the same composer could be as different in mood than that rousing ballad and the much more introverted Sylvia (1914), with its shimmeringly beautiful melodic line and a piano accompaniment worthy of a Schumann Lied.

from notes by Robert White 1995
