Alphabetical listing of all musical works

A summer day  
Blue water … a clear moon  
Concerto for piano and nine players (Lambert)
Cool is the autumn wind  
Eight Poems of Li-Po (Lambert)
Fair one, when you were here, I filled the house with flowers  
In the deserted garden among the crumbling walls  
Lines written in autumn  
Naked I lie in the green forest of summer  
On the city street  
The grass of Yen is growing green and long  
The intruder  
The long-departed lover  
The ruin of the Ku-Su palace  
They meet in the pink dust of the city street  
With a man of leisure  
Yonder the mountain flowers are out
