Elegy : for soprano and piano
by Wendy Hiscocks (1993)
Library shelf no. 783.66542/HIS 1 [Not for loan]
The Elegy's anonymous poem, sometimes ascribed to the American Makah tribe, was given to the composer after the death of her mother-‐‑in-‐‑law Trudl Howat in 1993. Trudl'ʹs spirit of light and adventure is well reflected in verse, and in setting it to music the composer was able to express her own feelings of thanks and of fond farewell.
Instrumentation: Soprano voice, piano.
