Picture of Sheet music  for Soprano or Tenor; Piano by Julian Dawes. ‘Songs of Ashes’ is a setting of fifteen poems by the Polish poet Jerzy Ficowski, the theme of the poetry being The Holocaust.

'Songs of Ashes' was completed in February 1991 and is dedicated to all those who suffered and died during the Holocaust, and also to Rabbi Louis Jacobs in recognition of his considerable impact on me.It was first performed at The Spiro Institute on 29th April 1992, the eve of Yom Hashoa, Holocaust Memorial Day.Since then it has received a number of performances in London, as well as in Manchester and Oxford, and has been broadcast three times to wide acclaim in Israel.It was the central work in a concert before an invited audience at the Polish Embassy in London, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising.

The poems set out to give a human face to The Holocaust, and the song-cycle symbolises man's right to live in a just world.
