Mezzo-Soprano Solo: Flute, Clarinet, Perc(1), Pno(d Harpsichord), Harp or Guitar, Violin, Cello
This is a setting of "The Hollow Men" by the American-born poet and critic, T.S. Eliot for mezzo-soprano, flute, clarinet, percussion, piano/harpsichord, harp or guitar, violin and cello. "The Hollow Men" can be understood asa reflection on the condition of those abandoned in old age and as the hallucinations of a mind drifting into the subconscious.
