Lament of the flutes for Dummuzi : per flauto e pianoforte / Katia Tiutiunnik.
by Katia Tiutiunnik (1999)
In composing Lament of the flutes for Dumuzi, my intention was to create a symbolic form portraying the religious experiences, which, in ancient Mesopotamia, found expression in the cult of Dumuzi. The initial inspiration for the work came from an English translation of a cuneiform hymn, entitled "Lament of the flutes for Damu." This lament was sung to the accompaniment of flutes every year in the precincts of the Temple Eanna, in ancient Uruk (Biblical Erech), as part of the ritual mourning of the dead Dumuzi in his aspect of the child god Damu.
