Description
A song cycle about our human experiences of love, time, and death. From the elation of love, to the illusions we sometimes have about what is important in life, from the questions we ponder about the meaning of power and authority, to the gentleness and intimacy of lullaby, the songs in this cycle soar, question, and illuminate.
