Let fall the windows of mine eyes

First line:
He is dead and gone, lady
author of text
Hamlet IV:5, Richard III V:3, King John IV:3

Let fall the windows of mine eyes is a sequence of three texts by William Shakespeare (1564-1616). Drawing on extracts from Hamlet, Richard III, and King John, Mealor constructs a sequence in response to a commission by the Voices of Shakespeare Festival in Brecon. Mealor’s instinctive melodicism, and his careful crafting of textures, pervades these settings. Wordless passages, set against text; solo passages, set against multiple vocal divisions; all attentively handled to deliver a new, imaginative reading of Shakespeare’s old, famous words.
