Rorem wrote the large-scale song cycle Evidence of Things Not Seen, described as his “masterwork” by Daniel Lewis in the Times.
A deeply personal work, the composition included settings of 36 texts by 24 poets, split into three larger sections:
“Beginnings” for optimistic and forward-looking songs,
“Middles” exploring coming of age and the devastation of war, as well as the final
“Ends” that concerns death, particularly Rorem’s friends killed by AIDS.
With an hour and a half duration, it called for a soprano, mezzo-soprano, tenor, and baritone with piano accompaniment. The music critic Peter G. Davis called it “one of the musically richest, most exquisitely fashioned, most voice-friendly collections of songs”, while Rorem himself lauded it as his best work.
