8. Foreign Correspondence

Wideawake. A place in wartime: Wideawake Field. Poems by Eliza Griswold, a foreign correspondent. Eight short lyrics, mostly in unison. Alto clarinet, trumpet, and viola, because why not. One from each family. A soprano above. My first “cellular song cycle,” with apologies to Sondheim in particular. A day’s work, wide awake.
