Stephen Chatman was born in Faribault, but music studies took him first to Oberlin, then Michigan, then straight to the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, where he has taught for 45 years. He has set numerous poems by Sara Teasdale in recent years, including Listen, I Love You, the first in a set of six Teasdale Love Songs written in 2018. The notes are easy and the ranges modest, but this unabashedly romantic setting offers terrific opportunities for expressive nuance on virtually every note.
