Alas! – Stuart Hinds
Published on Jun 2, 2017
Patrick Moore – cello Stuart Hinds – overtone singing performed at St. Thomas University, 9.29.16 The inspiration for Alas! came from the lute songs of John Dowland. Even though there are no lyrics, the emotional content and polyphonic style are similar to Dowland’s. The piece was originally composed for voice and bassoon and has also been performed with bass clarinet, but this performance was given with cello.
