Picture of Song Cycle for Mezzo-Soprano, Clarinet (or Viola) and Piano by Robert Hugill

1) THE DEAD POET - Words: Lord Alfred Douglas

2) DAVID'S LAMENT FOR JONATHAN - Words: Peter Abelard translated by Helen Waddell

3) ANOTHER DAY WITHOUT YOU - Words: Robert Hugill

4) SOFT, FOR MUSIC DIES - Words: M.V. Lively

5) MEMORARE - Words: M.V. Lively

A song cycle dealing with issues of loss and bereavement, but ending with a more uplifting message as in M.V. Lively's poem describing the a candlelight procession which took place in London in January 1988 in memory of those who died in the UK from AIDS. Revised version first performed by David Greiner (Counter-Tenor), John Cook (Clarinet) and Paul Webster (Piano) in March 1998.

(Poems by M.V. Lively from "How can you write a Poem when you're dying of AIDS" published by Cassell)

The flick' ring light
unsteady in my glass
susceptible to each
new gust of wind,
constantly being relit
cradled against the capricious
reminded me of you.
The last ten months of your life.
Your loving life flamed fight
Against AIDS.
