Description
Version of my song (lament) "The Swallows" for tenor and piano (a live vocal version for alto and piano can be heard here on the site, but the sound sample here is an electronic preview).
The Armenian poet Gourgen Mahari (as translated by James Russell) depicts the remainder of the Armenian nation after the massacre of 1915 like a flock of swallows unable to return. The song limps along in a sad 7/4 rhythm.
