Music and Texts of Gary Bachlund


This site contains many of my scores as well as texts, commentary on both texts and music, along with miscellaneous articles and poetry. Most scores are available free as PDF downloads. The main language of this site is English. Its pages include English paraphrases and translations from other languages as well as historical information about the authors whose words I have set into song -- something of who they were and are, what they have given and still give to us. Such artists throughout the ages deserve our respect for the scope and content of their work. It is intended that this site be a resource for any who have interest in my work as it progresses, and that the content of this site give joy, insight and stimulation to those who come to the works herein. For more information about the site itself please click on the links above for that purpose or click on a subject in the banner above or titles below.
