CitySongs is a song cycle based on texts heard on the streets and in the locales
of Boston. The settings portray the words as accurately as possible with regard
to preserving the original rhythm, pitch, and mood in which they were observed
At times passionate, funny, violent, and vulnerable, the songs form an overall
arch which illustrate above all the prevading dramatic theme of the alienation
of the speaker, both from his community, and from himself.
