Uncommon Sheet Music for Flute and Alto Flute

Lydia Kakabadse set to music the words of Thomas Hood’s 1843 poem The Song of the Shirt.  Written for soprano and piano, the piece has a beautiful, haunting melody, infused with pathos and menace that support the heartbreaking, melancholic text.  The music is inspired and expressive, and works beautifully alone as a sort of “song without words” for an instrumental duo of alto flute (in lieu of voice) and piano.
