Perhaps Not to Be was written for the wedding of soprano Emily Mills Woodruff in June 2013 at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, NY. The English translation of the poem by Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) was used for the piece, and was originally scored for soprano and organ, featuring mezzo-soprano Katherine Ciesinski and organist Thatcher Lyman.
