Programme Note:
In the End was written for Stephanie Kramer during the fall of 2003. The song cycle is in five movements, organized in palindrome-like way. The first and fifth movements are based on biblical texts, presented by the soloist in a near-static recitation. The second and penultimate songs are settings of epitaphs--the second a light hearted send-off, while the fourth is a tender lament. The central song of the cycle is a setting of John Donne's wonderful sonnet, 'Death be not Proud', and forms the musical and ideological heart of the work.

Premiere Information:
