|Notes:||Creeley completed this work in summer 1992. "The provocation had been a younger [unnamed] composer's interest to complete a triad of Poe's works, and our incidental meeting led to my working in this altogether unanticipated way, so as to provide the final third of his required texts." Cf. R. Creeley, introductory note, in A.R. Thomas. Ligeia / libretto by Leslie Dunton-Downer ; music by Augusta Read Thomas ..., c1994, p. 4-5.
