Notes and Editorial Reviews

Margaret Garwood, like many earlier composers, is essentially self-taught. She passed the requirements for a Bachelor’s degree in music by examination, and now holds a graduate degree in composition. She is greatly indebted to composers Julia Smith, Louise Talma, and especially Miriam Gideon for their support. While she has written several instrumental chamber works, the majority of her output is for voices, and includes four operas, numerous song cycles, and works for combined chorus and orchestra. Her operas have received fully staged productions in New York, Philadelphia and on the West Coast. They include The Trojan Women, The Nightingale and the Rose, Rappaccini’s Daughter, and an opera for children entitled Joringel and the Read more Songflower. She has written the librettos to all her own operas, with the exception of the first one. She is presently working on an opera based on Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. Read less
