La Morte Meditata


By Frederick Frahm. Music for organ solo, mostly manuals.



A moving work for organ (mostly manuals) after a poem by Giuseppe Ungaretti from 1932:

…Quando m’avrai domato, dimmi:
Nella malinconia dei vivi
Volerà a lungo la mia ombra?…

Once you have subdued me, tell me:
In the land of the living
How long shall my shadow fly?

Composed in memory of Eric Nash Walters (1967-2016)
