Rose for alto or baritone and piano
Rose is a setting of a poem by a Kurdish prisoner of conscience in Turkey (Iskan Acikca) translated into English specially for this song. The poet longs to be free so he can rejoin his love and simply cultivate his garden. This, in its effective simplicity, is the composer's favourite composition.
There is a rose in my garden, a crimson rose opening in my heart. Rosy cheeks blossoming like a young pomegranate plant, which loves the earth like spring. Like a rising sun in the sky, both weep, both love from within. Like a rising moon in the night, like summer rain watering my rose garden, as if it were a life. It is you in my dreams at night; every moment I see you in my mind; you are running through my soul like blood runs through my veins with joy.
