Accompaniment can be played on pedal harp or piano.
Byron Adams’ Three Songs collection is for pedal harp and high voice. Although each of the songs were composed at different times, they are all dedicated to musicians who inspired Adams. About the pieces, Adams states they “do in fact constitute an oblique narrative, progressing from erotic fulfillment through romantic disillusionment to renunciation.” Individual lyrics for each piece are also included.
