The poetry for this small cantata comes from a dark time of the 20th century – the Vietnam era, the Cold War at its height, the prospect of nuclear winter. The feelings expressed are graphically nihilistic, yet the simple beauty and joy of music emerge as the ray of hope. The piece is a collection of dramatic solo recitations, solo readings, and choral songs all with instrumental accompaniment.
