The drowned lovers

First line:
In the deepest reaches of the lake
author of text

Both words and music were written by Judith Bingham inspired by a swim in a Bavarian lake and was intended to be a partner work for The blue bird by Stanford. Judith has spent much of her musical life with feet in two camps, as singer and composer. Many of her influences are not simply from the abstract but are enriched from nature and from the realm of ideas and from other art forms. The drowned lovers is scored for mezzo solo and eight-part chorus.
