Walt Whitman

1819 - 1892

The poetry of the “Bard of Democracy,” as America came to call our great poet Walt Whitman, is filled with music--melodic phrases, lyrical imagery, cadences that build and reverberate. Composers around the world have responded to Whitman’s vast canon of poems, giving us settings that number 1,200 (and counting).
