Millay's poetry is not too dense, making it excellent for the brief presentation of text the listener gets in a song cycle. The cycle is lyrical, full of variety, and offers the performers many opportunities to make beautiful, controlled gestures.
The instrumentation is the same as Schubert's Der Hirt auf dem Felsen, making it useful for building a concert around Schubert's masterpiece.
