Goblin Market

First published in 1862, the narrative poem the Goblin Market by Christina Rosetti, ostensibly a poem for children, was immediately hailed for its rich symbolism, vivid imagery and multiple layers of meaning.

The poem is still influential today and is the basis of a wonderful work for narrator and large ensemble by Pulitzer prize winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis.

ACM is proud to present a performance of the Goblin Market alongside two other pieces incorporating spoken word in a chamber music setting.
