This moving group of songs set to 14 writers is a memorial to the composer's long-time companion. In the composer's words: The overall theme stresses nostalgia and loss; but also frustration and anger; and finally renewal; albeit renewal through defiance of death. Premiered at Alice Tully Hall in 2002 by baritone Kurt Ollmann and pianist Scott Dunn.Contents: I: 1.
