From Death to Life

Composer: Barna Szabó
Lyricist: Michael Drayton


Words from composer:

Drayton’s famous poem doesn’t need much explanation. It is about parting, a most ordinary topic – when love is dying, yet still tormenting, with a feeble flame of hope for fulfillment.

Sadly enough, this ambiguity remains unresolved even beyond the final chords of the music.
