Notes

The Muse’s Aria from Quilt Song.

THE SITUATION:

Abraham Lincoln has just died from his wounds. Mrs Lincoln is at his graveside. The words are from John Drinkwater’s play Abraham Lincoln which premiered at The Old Birmingham Rep in 1918.

Under the stars an end is made,
And on the field the Southern blade
Lies broken,
And, where strife was, shall union be,
And, where was bondage, liberty.
The word is spoken. . . .
Night passes.

Also available for mezzo-soprano and piano.
