This contemporary cabaret song, in the tradition of Jacques Brel, tells the story of a woman dying at home surrounded by family, friends, and Death herself, personified as a mysterious crone. Dark and dramatic, with classical overtones, this song would feel appropriate programmed alongside the music of Weill, Brel, Spoliansky, Hollaender, Bowie, Morrissey, or Elvis Costello, and is appropriate as a voice-lesson song for students in all styles. This edition is a lead sheet, intended for voice and piano. ASCAP. Check out more contemporary cabaret songs by Alpher & Litt at or at YouTube channel Jennie Litt & David Alpher.
