This beautiful art-song collection is names after Phillis Wheatley, America's first female African-American poet, whose poems were an inspiration to George Washington and the other Founding Fathers. The seeds of her work in the 18th Century have now started to grow and bloom today in a new way. Renowned African-American composer, Rosephanye Powell, has married her music to the poetry of other historical African-American women, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Angelina Weld Grimké, Georgia Douglas Johnson, for solo voice and piano. This collection makes a first and commanding statement, both artistically and historically. For solo voices from high school and older.
