Details

This is a setting of Mary Elizabeth Frye’s only accredited poem of the same name. Written in 1932 in response to the heartbreak of Margaret Schwarzkopf, a German Jew staying with Mary in Baltimore, USA. Margaret’s mother was ill but she was unable to return to Germany to visit her due to the growing unrest at the time and following her death Margaret was devastated that she never had the chance to “stand by my mother’s grave and shed a tear”.

The piece sets the poem as written, using gentle cluster chords supporting elements of Jewish scales in the middle section as a homage to those forced from their homes and to all those separated from their loved ones throughout history.
