The Feud of Love is a cycle of love/hate scenes between feuding couples from three Shakespeare plays, Richard III, Troilus and Cressida, and The Taming of the Shrew. The work is written in a tonal idiom and makes extensive use of motives. Within the scenes, recitative sections alternate with lyrical passages. The work is scored for two singers (soprano and baritone) and a chamber ensemble consisting of flute/piccolo, oboe, Bb clarinet, bassoon, horn in F, percussion (timpani and tubular bells), harp, two violins, viola, cello, and contrabass. It has an approximate duration of 50 minutes.
