Product details

Lark 2 is the third version of my composition Lark for mezzo-soprano and chamber ensemble from my song-cycle Songs of Love and Terror. The second version, Lark 1 is for mezzo-soprano and orchestra; in Lark 2 the voice is replaced by saxophone. Despite the absence of the voice, knowledge of the text by the 12th century poet, Bernart de Ventadorn is crucial to appreciation of Lark 2.

When I see the lark in joy rise on its wings in the rays of the sun, and then, oblivious, let itself fall, because of the gladness that fills its heart, such great envy comes upon me to see it so joyful, I wonder then that I do not rave, and that my heart does not melt with desire.
