Item Number: S0.19793

Poem by Gourgen Mahari translated by James Russell, set to music by David W Solomons This song with its slow limping 7/4 evokes the tiredness of the Swallows on their way home and the fact that they may dies before they can reach it. The swallows represent the Armenian people after the 1915 massacre and the ensuing diaspora. The recording is from the CD Songs of Solomons and was performed by Stephen Taylor (countertenor) and Jonathan Leonard (piano), who have given permission for use of their performance.It would also work for baritone voice.
