Nocturne Op. 54, No. 4 (Score and Parts). Composed by Gian Carlo Menotti (1911-). For Harp, Orchestra, Strings, Vocal, String Ensemble (String Set). Vocal. 28 pages. G. Schirmer #ED3522. Published by G. Schirmer (HL.50480037).

ISBN 1423440641. 9x12 inches.

For soprano, harp and string orchestra (or string quartet). A brief elegiac work written to pay homage to Alice Tully, Lincoln Center benefactress. The vocal line is a smooth, tranquil lullaby, a pure mixture of song and recitative. The text is Menotti's own, with thought of life, aging, possibly death, and rebirth.
