Musica Classica di John Mitchell
Set by John Mitchell (1941-) op.90, no. 2 (1993)
Text by Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990).
Nothing is lost, sweet self,
Nothing is ever lost.
The unspoken word
Is not exhausted but can be heard.
Music that stains
The silence remains
O echo is everywhere, the unbeckonable bird!
