Habirandosan no Haiku for alto or baritone and piano
Based on haikus in English by Mark Haviland this pentatonic setting by David W Solomons gives the poems a Japanese flavour. The recording is from the CD Songs of Solomons and was performed by Stephen Taylor (countertenor) and Jonathan Leonard (piano), who have given permission for use of their performance. Sunset ragged weeping down dark wooded hills fallen leaves choke our path
On lonely country roads traveller leaves footprints in thin night-fall snow
Green amid the haze and dust a lizard darting shelters from the sun
Forgotten badger country secretly whispers to a shy young flower.
