Lyrics by Robert Frost

This setting of Robert Frost’s well-known poem is for soprano and trombone, with a duration of just over three minutes.  The two melodic lines are meant to reflect the two roads of the poem, starting out the same, going in different directions, but perhaps being more similar than first perceived.


Recorded at University of Alabama in Huntsville on October 17, 2008.

  • Karen Young, soprano
  • Don Bowyer, trombone
