A Late Tribute....

Philip Booth (1925 - 2007)

Although this is quite late coming, I just found out about it. One of my favorite poets, Philip Booth, died last summer (July 2). He was a student of Robert Frost and was a witty and quirky poet. I set my favorite poem of his "Was A Man" some years ago, although maybe not an overly successful SATB setting, it was a delight maneuvering around his word play and sense of humor. He has several books of poetry that are well worth the investigation. He will be missed.
